I pulled this from archives. This was delicious!!! I gave it a favorite. I went all out and bought the best of everything for it...so good!!! It was my first experience at carmelizing onions.. And as always, the salad dressing was a hit...especially with my husband. He loves salads, and loves that I take the time to make the dressings from the recipes!

Hubby loved the sandwich but wouldn't even try the dressing. I have to agree that he wasn't missing much as the dressing was not very good.
