Sweet ‘n’ Sour Salad Dressing

For the salad, Molly relies on a tangy dressing she's been whipping up since childhood. "This is my signature dressing,: she writes. "I don't know where it came from originally, but I still have the tattered recipe card, written in my childish scrawl."

    Delicious. Poured it over fresh salad greens and was perfectly sweet and sour. Might try using different flavors of vinegar to alter the taste depending on the salad I am making.

    Not what I was expecting; it was too sweet and didn't really taste like a salad dressing to me.
