    Daemonized,
    I fear my dipstick may be permanently damaged and only a direct infusion of coconut oil and bacon drippings will save it at this point! What do I do?!

    Also, that's exactly what I did Dosenberry... no way I'm going to trust someone to put dressing on my salad!

This is an authentic recipe straight out of the kitchen of my greek grandmother (yia yai) from the old country!
    Thank you! I will definitely try this! Any vinegar you recommend in particular?

    If it was a better eatery it could have been canola or (gasp) evoo

    If it was your run of the mill place, I bet they get their salad dressing from SYSCO which would almost for sure be made with soybean oil.

    @Rivvin...by now the toxins have hit your digestive tract...I think that you need to be evacuated (LOL)

    Hell, I should be a waiter. I'd be tempted to tell someone that it was used motor oil from a Ford Pinto or something. I'd probably get tipped with quart of 10W40 though.

    "Ah sir, we have a team of Inuit that goes and collects blubber from whales that die of natural causes. So, the oil in our vinaigrette is actually whale oil from whales that were not hunted by whalers."
