Clayton's Celebrated Salad Dressing


  • 3 tablespoonfuls of mustard
  • 1 pint of best olive oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teacup of best wine vinegar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 small teaspoonful of salt
  • 1 small teaspoonful of white sugar


Take the mustard, mixed quite stiff. Pour on this slowly 1/4 of the pint of olive oil, stirring rapidly till thick. Then add the eggs, and after mixing slightly pour in slowly the remaining 3/4 of the pint of oil, stirring rapidly till the mixture forms a thick batter. Next take the wine vinegar and lemon juice, salt and white sugar. Stir until the ingredients are well mixed. When bottled and tightly corked, this will remain good for months.
