I have this same recipe, but it calls for chili sauce, not soup. I have also made it with Heinz 57 and it is my favorite that way. From what I heard, the L and H Inn was a restaraunt in South Bend Indiana. This was their house dressing.

I was looking for my copy of this recipe but couldn’t find it. The LH (or L&H) Inn was in South Bend. We used to go there for dinner about 50-60 years ago. I don’t remember much about it except it was a roadside restaurant and this was the house dressing. OUr family has made this recipe – with tomato soup – for years.

This salad dressing was from the Lincoln Hwy Inn, South Bend, IN. A very popular restaurant in the area in the 60’s – 70’s. The recipe was passed around my family at the time and a favorite of ours. Glad I found it as I lost the copy I had.

No, it wasn’t L&H Inn, it was LH Inn, short for Lincoln Highway Inn. And, no, it wasn’t located in South Bend, IN. It was located in Mishawaka, IN.

I am now 60 years old and my mother raved about this dressing. I don’t know how she got the recipe years ago, but she made it and our whole family loved it! My mother was born and raised in South Bend, IN. Her name was Virginia Chartier, married Richard Krauss, became Virginia Krauss. Nice to know others are enjoying this recipe!
