Kentucky Maple Syrup Salad Dressing (1949)

  • 1 cup malt vinegar
  • 3 tspns salt
  • 1/4 tspn paprika
  • Dash of tabasco or another hot dressing
  • Juice and pulp of 2 small onion, grated
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 cup real olive oil
In a mixing bowl, place the malt vinegar and add salt, paprika, tabasco sauce, onion juice and pulp. Mix well. 

Add maple syrup. Stir until blended, then add olive oil. Pour into a bottle or jar and shake well. 

This dressing is especially good with pear, pineapple, or any fruit salad, cheese and fruit aspics, or with any salad requiring a sweet dressing. 

Variation - Add 1/4 tspn poultry seasoning and 1/4 tspn dry mustard to above dressing, mixing these ingredients with the vinegar and proceeding as follows. This gives a much spicier flavor.
