Brown Derby Cobb Salad Dressing

Cobb Salad was one of my favorite salads from when I first read a recipe for it in the early to mid 1980s.  It was awhile before it showed up on restaurant menus, and now just about every restaurant has some version of it.  The story goes that it was invented at the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood late one night using up ingredients in the fridge.  When we visited MGM Studios at Disney World, we ate the Cobb Salad at the Brown Derby, where they gave out the recipe.  I've never made the entire recipe, but I use the salad dressing often.

I have included proportions for three different amounts as the original recipe makes a LOT!
