LOOKING for: Looking For: French dressing w/Can tomato soup base

When I was young my mother made a French salad dressing using Campbell's tomato soup for the base. I used the recipe
for years, but it was lost to Hurricane Andrew along with others. If anyone has it I would greatly appreciate receiving it. Also lost my grandmother's buttermilk cornbread recipe. Damn that storm

Here's a buttermilk cornbread recipe. Hope it's similar to what you were looking for:
1 1/2 cups cornmeqal
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups milk, divided
2 TBL butter

combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda & salt in a large bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs & 1 cup of the milk. Beat with a spoon until smooth.
Melt the butter in a 9" heavy skillet. When the skillet is hot, pour in the batter. Pour the remaining 1 cup milk over this. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 50 minutes or until lightly browned. cut into wedges & serve.~~Hancock Community Collection

RE: LOOKING for: Looking For: French dressing w/Can tomato soup

The tomato soup dressing ws always my favorite growing up.
It was very similar to the 1st one but I think it had some prepared yellow mustard in it.
I used to made it as a BD gift for a friend, it was all he wanted!
I just throw all ingredients in the blender!
