This is the traditional Martha’s Vineyard Salad Dressing, originally from Charlie’s Crab on St. Armands in Florida. I asked for the recipe years ago, when the restaurant was still called Charlie’s Crab.  I modified it a bit for home cooking from the restaurant proportions I was given, but I have retained all of the ingredients to keep the tradition and make this version the best!
