Betty Salad Recipe | Bren Haas

It’s just not spring in my home and garden without serving up the Betty Salad Recipe. In today’s post I share that recipe.

Betty Salad Recipe

The dressing is super easy to make from scratch.  Below is the recipe my mother in law gave me years ago. However, please note that this dressing is found in most of the grocery stores in the Midwest these days.

About Betty Salad

Betty Salad became a family tradition shortly after I got married almost 20 years ago when my mother in law shared with me how easy it was to make the dressing from scratch.  We use to have brunch up at The French Quarters after church from time to time and this salad was always on the buffet.  Today you can purchase Betty Salad dressing  at the local grocery store. The salad was originally from Timko Soup & Such restaurant which was was located on the northwest corner of Sylvania & Douglas in Toledo Ohio. Not long after Betty Timko died the restaurant closed, but her salad dressing is still produced and sold in jars at food stores.  Find out more about Betty and her Family at The Blade / A family tradition.

    • I guess good ol’ Betty started serving this recipe up at French Quarters Perrysburg in the early 60’s. It’s super yummy – thank you for stopping by Kylee!

  1. I used to go to Timko’s Soups n’ Such restaurant just for their Betty Salad — yummmmo! I’m definitely going to make this soon — thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. Thank you for continuing this wonderful hometown salad. In my younger days I remember going to Betty Timko’s Soup and Such Restaurant at the corner of Sylvania and Douglas seeing Miss Betty making her rounds visiting at everyone’s table. Toledo has so much history contributing to the food world! I’ll be serving this Friday night to my son and his wife when they come home for his CCHS reunion.
