Have you ever wanted a homemade salad dressing that would be good on a wide variety of dishes? We have used this “Boiled Salad Dressing” for decades. The best thing about this dressing is that you can double the recipe; which when doubled makes 1/2 gallon of dressing.

PICT0759The dressing is easy to make, as well as being great on coleslaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, meat salads, even as a tangy sauce in place of mayo on sandwiches, if you like a good tomato sandwich, it tastes great on that as well.

You can buy a quart of mayonnaise and you know how that has increased in price, however you can make this ever ready dressing and keep in a contain in the refrigerator, also the most important thing here is that it will keep indefinitely in the refrigerator. I can tell you that we have kept it for 3-4 months or so, and is as good as the day it was made, it never gets to the point of indefinite!!


3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup Boiling Water

1/2 cup Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Dry Mustard

2 Tablespoons Flour

2 Eggs

1 Tablespoon Butter

1 cup Sour Cream

1/4 cup Durkee’s  Famous Sandwich and Salad Sauce

3/4 cup Mayonnaise

Put vinegar in double boiler.

Mix dry ingredients together, beat eggs and add to dry mixture mixing to form a paste.

Add boiling water to paste and stir to mix well.

Slowly add this mixture to the hot vinegar

Cook until thick

Remove from stove and add butter, stir until blended.

Mix together the Sour Cream, Mayonnaise, and Durkee’s

Add this to the cooled mixture and stir until well blended.

Put into jar or jars and refrigerate, this dressing will keep indefinitely


PICT0758Durkee’s Famous Sandwich and Salad Sauce at times is hard to find. the dressing comes out great without, but the Durkee’s will give another  dimension of flavor if you can find it.

Regular Dry Mustard can be used, however we have always used Coleman’s Dry Mustard Flour (British)

The recipe is easily doubled

Also we never did use a double boiler to make this, if you watch and don’t walk away a regular pan will work just fine.

You will find many uses for this salad dressing.
