Embers Salad Dressing

HowardHoward Justan

Famous, Famous, Famous! Back in the 70’s and 80’s people used to go to the Embers restaurant just to get this dressing. In fact my mother would get it and bring up to Pennsylvania to my father before they were married. Many years later, the secret recipe is here.


  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle juice (from a jar of sweet pickles)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 hard-cooked egg (optional)
  • A few black olives (optional)
