Cecile’s Salad Dressing

Cecile's Salad Dressing

This simple salad dressing is a classic in our family, and was passed around by my Auntie Cecile. I like to keep this one on hand, as it’s simple, allowing the flavours of the salad shine through, while adding a little zip to everything.

    My mom made the same dressing much of the time. Always a favourite.
