"I made it and really liked it. I used a sweet onion about the size of a tennis ball. When the recipe says large onion....I never know if its baseball or grapefruit sized."

"I love this salad dressing recipe! Not only is it easy to make but it also makes a quart sized jar amount which I need because everyone loves it so much. Every time I serve this dressing people ask for the recipe."
