Creamy Celery Seed Dressing

 Creamy Celery Seed Dressing
This recipe originated with my Aunt Mazie, a wonderful cook from West Virginia. I like this dressing because of its versatility. It's wonderful with potatoes, macaroni, hot or cold sliced meat or vegetables. I've shared it with many friends and have had it published in several fund-raising cookbooks.
