One year for Christmas, after saving different jars thru out the year, we made several batches of this dressing and gave as gifts to my husband's co-workers. So many compliments we received!

My Mom used to have a recipe for Dorthy Lynch Salad Dressing, but due to her fading memory, she has lost the recipe and really doesn't remember even having it. The only ingredient I can recall is that it used a can of tomato soup, but have no idea on the rest of the ingredients or amounts. Does anyone happen to have the recipe? Thank you so much in advance.
