Loretto dressing

I'm searching for the recipe for a salad dressing that was served at two Italian restaurants in Olean, NY - the Castle and the Alcove Restaurants. There was a company that owned the restaurants called Loretto Foods. Before the company and the restaurants closed, this dressing was also sold locally in grocery stores.
I've come close to reproducing the recipe, but something is still missing. The dressing was a light salmon color and usually served on salad with gorganzola cheese. Anybody have an idea?

Curry Chicken Casserole

I didn't want to give this review too low of a rating. I don't eat a lot of foods flavored with curry, so maybe I'm a bit inexperienced to give an accurate analysis. That said, I have a few observations on this recipe. I felt like the mayo a bit overwhelmed the overall flavor in this dish. Maybe cut back 25 to 50 percent on that ingredient. Also, I think you could bake this dish hotter (maybe 360 to 375) and longer (perhaps 45 minutes). You know, maybe even a couple of minutes on broil would help give a little crunchiness to the topping.
