Kate Cowick French Dressing

This dressing was served at a restaurant in Belfort, France, a century ago, while my MIL's aunt "Tatschie" was visiting an uncle who lived in Luzern, Switzerland. After convincing the chef that they were Americans and the recipe would not go to the competition, she brought it back, and it has become a family classic, essential for family gatherings. Color will vary from orange to creamy-white depending on use of whisk, mixer, or blender, but the sweet, tangy flavor remains the same. Also good on sliced turkey or roast beef. (Kate Cowick was a neighbor in Kansas City, MO, in the 1930's, who loved and published the recipe, not the actual traveller as originally reported here.)
