Canadian Club Dressing

I love old, forgotten recipes. Canadian Club (Salad) Dressing is an excellent example. A brief netsearch for Canadian Club Dressing shows NONE extant.

5 ozs. white wine vinegar (4% strength) - or stronger % if you prefer.
9 ozs. vegetable oil
1 3/4 fl. ozs. lemon juice
14 fl. ozs. chile sauce (this is a sauce like ketchup, NOT Mexican hot sauce)
1 rounded tsp. white pepper, fine grind
1 rounded tsp. mustard powder
1/2 red bell pepper, cored, peeled somewhat and minced (1/8")

Mix the oil and vinegar and mustard and pepper to make a French dressing, and when well mixed add the other ingredients.

Should separation occur, the ingredients should be well mixed before using.
