My Recipe Box - Magic Pan Salad Dressing

Does anyone remember the chain Magic Pan? 

They had a location in the Eaton Centre (formerly Les Terrasses) in Montreal and served crepes and salads. Here is a link to an incredible photo of it.
 It was the perfect place to go with girlfriends.
These restaurants just disappeared one day. While browsing the web for some information on the chain someone reminded me of their chicken divan crepes!!

This salad dressing has always been one of my favourite. I have substituted other fruits such as fresh raspberries in season and use raspberry vinegar instead.
I always add a smidgen of Dijon mustard to my salad dressings as well.
