LOOKING for: White House Salad Dressing

vampiressrnMay 15, 2010

Does anyone remember the white creamy salad dressing that was in a tall skinny glass jar from the 1950's called "White House Salad Dressing". I think my Mom used to get it in San Diego at the De Falco's Grocery store. I have searched for it for years, but can't find it...would love the recipe if anyone knows of it.

I hope you will let us know if either of these is close to what you remember? And also, how is this type of dressing used?

I just found this post, so don't know if you'll see this. I grew up in SoCal eating White House dressing and loved it. I've been looking for it for a long time. I was just wondering if you tried either of these recipes and if either one came close to tasting like the original White House dressing. Thanks!
