Stouffer's Restaurant's White French Dressing

Last night, while browsing the web for some history about Stouffer's restaurants, I ran across a recipe for Tack Room Salad with White French Dressing. The recipe is near the very top of the replies:

Having never have dined in a Stouffer's restaurant, or knowingly having a salad dressing which starts out with a cooked cornstarch base, I was just curious if anyone has ever made this or something similar (or ate it in one of the restaurants)?

If you have, do you recommend it? It sounds interesting.

  1. My grandmother made something like this. Cooked dressings with cornstarch were cheap substitutes for oil when oil was expensive or rationed. A lot of times they were to mimic a bacon dressing.
