This style of dressing is often referred to as "louis" dressing. This is our quick and easy "got-it-in-the-pantry" version. We often add some finely chopped sweet onion or cilantro (a little milk to thin it out, a dash of hot sauce to give it some "kick"...) if it's handy so feel free to add or subtract until you've got your own signature dressing!
dinner salad for two adults : 1 part = 1 Tablespoon
5 parts mayo
2 parts lemon juice
1 part chili sauce (not the sweet or super spicy, look for the stuff by the ketchup)
1 part sweet relish
salt and pepper to taste
Stir or whisk together and pour over a crisp green salad topped with shrimp or crab meat. Yum!
