How to make Briar Hill Dressing?
Cut the bacon into fine strips and fry until crisp. Cool in its fat. Mix other ingredients; fold in the bacon and its fat while the fat is still liquid. (If amount of fat seems excessive, it may be diminished or omitted entirely.)

For a good salad, combine:
3 parts cubed, cooked potatoes (or cooked macaroni)
1 part diced crisp cucumber
1 part chopped hard-cooked eggs

Seasonings to taste:
Diced sweet pepper
Paper-thin onion rings
Celery (or celery seed or celery salt)
A whisper of curry powder
Salt, pepper, paprika

Blend in sufficient Briar Hill dressing to moisten. Adjust seasonings to taste. Better if refrigerated several hours before serving with colourful garnishes.
