Marty's Salad.....

Buggy Works Restaurant was a place to go for family and friends get-togethers. Sadly they have closed after many years. My favorite there was the Marty's Salad. Now you can have it at Thomas' restaurant on Plymouth Road..but ONLY on Fridays. If you want to make your own, try this recipe.

I do not represent this as healthy eating as you will gather from the ingredients; but once in a while, not every day, it is delicious. Maybe that's why Thomas' only has it once a week.

Sweet and Sour Salad Dressing

1 14 oz. can of Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of Karo syrup, white
1/2 cup of white vinegar
1 and 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
1/4 lb. (1 stick) butter sliced in small pieces
(You see what I mean).

In top of double boiler over simmering water, combine all ingredients with a wire whisk til butter is melted. Let cook about 30 minutes, stir occasionally. Put mixture through blender on high speed just a few seconds to combine and cool before refrigerating tightly covered. Refrigerate several hours before using. If it is too thick you can thin it with just a little water (hot). Makes 1 and 1/2 quarts.

For the salad , use romaine, iceberg and endive if you have with 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion, 1/3 cup real Hormel bacon bits, 4 oz. Kraft finely shredded Cheddar cheese. Use dressing sparingly, you will love it.

At least it has no salt.

I agree, that does sound like a treat. Don't you hate it when one of your favorite places closes up. Nice you do have someplace to go where you can get it or you can make your own. Happy Valentines Day to you. Have a terrific Tuesday!
