aunt marion's shrimp salad dressing

i found this in an old cook book of my mom's that encompassed all of the ladies in the area growing up. they were all related and i knew marion personally. she was sweet. i love the idea of this dressing served in the prime of the 50's under a shady tree while the kids were playing out in the pool. ahhh.

i served this at my sister in laws shower as one of 3 salad options. i have to say, it was the hit.

i served it will marinated chicken and spinach and romaine.

the accompanying veggies were avocado, tomato and cucumbers. there is so much flavor in this dressing. made the night before, the flavors become more bold and wonderful!

2/3 qt. mayo
1 jar chili sauce (i used a small jar here)
2 cans small shrimp (fresh ones would be awesome too)
2 TBSP sweet pickle juice ( i only had sweet relish on hand, it worked great)
1 TBSP dill pickle juice
1-2 tsp horseradish sauce
2-3 TBSP lemon juice ( i did use a fresh lemon)
2-3 TBSP sugar
2-4 TBSP worcestershire

mix all together the night before. refrigerate and serve cold.
