About This Recipe

"This is my grandmother's recipe for the salad dressing she used instead of mayonaise. (I never tasted mayo until I was a teenager). We used it in pasta salads, egg and tuna salads and sandwiches. I still don't eat BLTs without the tang of this dressing. Grandma made hers on the stovetop and had to stir constantly to avoid scorching. I now do mine in the microwave and no longer have to worry about that."


1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1/4 cup vinegar ( either white or cider )

1/2 cup hot water

2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard ( Dijon, Honey Mustard or other flavors will work)

1 tablespoon butter



1. In microwave safe bowl mix sugar, cornstarch and salt.

2. Whisk in the egg, vinegar, water and mustard.

3. Microwave on high for 3 minutes then stir.

4. Microwave again on high for 1 minute then stir and repeat in 1 minute increments until dressing comes to a boil and thickens - about 5 - 6 minutes total cook time. (It will continue to thicken as it cools).

5. Add butter.

6. Store in refrigerator.

I am told that this is the solution to supper on a hot southern summer day.

This is great as a main supper or luncheon dish.

It is terrific in a sandwich and it is perfect for a snack in the middle of the night.

Dont overcook the chicken, please.
