Simple Green Salad with Homemade Mayo Dressing

This Simple Green Salad with Homemade Mayo Dressing is a delicious and easy addition to dinner!

This is my favourite green salad of all time…every time I eat this salad, I am whisked away, back to my childhood. Memories of warm summers, fresh greens, gardens and family.  

And I have also since discovered that this recipe was one of my Grandpa’s favourites. Making it even more special.  I hope you enjoy it!

I was asking my Mom about the exact recipe for this dressing, since I have always just made it to-taste, and I guess that is the recipe.  To taste.  Sometimes those recipes from memory truly are the best ones.  But I will try to make it a little more clear for you than that!  😉
