Bob invented this
simple salad dressing. It's my personal favorite, and I never
get tired of it. Use it wherever you would use an oil and vinegar
dressing, such as on any tossed salad.
The key ingredient turns out to be Johnny's Caesar Salad
garlic spread. It is available very reasonably at CostCo
in an 18 oz. plastic jar. It is exceptionally tasty, has
dozens of uses, and is much lower in sodium than packaged
salad dressings (75mg per serving).
If you have trouble locating this in your market, Johnny's
hails from Tacoma, and they even have a web page for Online
Shopping with tempting titles like "Jamaica Me Crazy
Lemon Pepper". There's a listing for Garlic Spread,

Seasons" cruet that has been marketed for decades. If
you have the cruet, just add vinegar, water and oil to the
indicated marks and then add the Johnny's seasoning. Shake
well just before each serving.
Of course you know you can be creative and use your favorite
vinegar: tarragon, balsamic, white, malt, or apple cider
vinegars, for starters. We use plain Apple Cider vinegar.
If you don't have the cruet, I used a measuring cup to give
the listed (appropximate) proportions of each of the 3 liquid
Try it and enjoy!
