Pennsylvania Dutch Sweet and Sour Dressing......
I like Pennsylvania Dutch cooking and especially the vintage recipes. This is a recipe my Gram made in the summer time for wilted lettuce. It was always a favorite of my Gramp and me. It's a very simple sweet and sour dressing. A pile of wilted lettuce with hard boiled egg slices was a popular summer salad from my childhood. I hope you enjoy it as well.
