Sweet and Sour House Dressing recipe

This is a salad dressing that you may find addicting.  Again, I warn you, you may find it addicting…just want to make sure that you fully understand that.  :)  It’s actually a recipe from a local restaurant that my Grandpa used to go to all the time; they then sold the recipe to another local restaurant and we ended up with it.  I LOVE to have this on Taco Salad or even just a plain ol’ salad will do!  It will actually make you want to eat your veggies.  This recipe makes like 3/4 of a gallon and you’ll be glad to know that you don’t need a lot on your salad.  I also like to dip things in it like pepperoni and veggies (if I don’t feel like making an actual salad).  I’ve even put it on white rice to act as a sweet and sour sauce recipe!  :)  ENJOY!  :)
