Could you please research this? The best salad dressing ever! Thank you so much x 
Waco Texas

Hello Jan,

The Houston, Texas chain has a website here: Goode Company

Their menu shows:
Grilled Chicken Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Their menu and a few restaurant reviews is the only place that I can find any mention of their cilantro lime dressing. If you were hoping for a recipe or copycat, then I’m afraid that I must disappoint you. I had no success finding anything at all about it.

There are recipes for other cilantro lime dressings on these sites:

Cilantro Lime Dressing 
Goode Company Copycat

1/4 teaspoon jalapeno pepper; minced 
1-1/2 tablespoon white onion; minced 
1/4 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped 

Combine all of the ingredients the cilantro into a blender and process until it is a creamy consistency. 
Taste and adjust with sugar, lime or salt to your preference. Add the cilantro and pulse quickly several 
times until the leaves are finely chopped; do not overmix or the dressing will lose color.

Hello,I saw that you were able to locate an old ZCMI raisin cookie recipe.
I was wondering if you'd be able to find the recipe for the sugar cookies they used to make.
Thank You

Hi Magen,

Sorry, no luck with ZCMI’s sugar cookies. The Salt Lake Tribune has made a project of trying to locate ZCMI’s recipes, and they have had limited success. See the articles on these pages:

Frank's Coney Island Sauce

Hi, I have been unable to locate or duplicate the hot dog sauce from a hot dog shop in Columbus, Ohio from the 1950’s and 60’s.  
There was a establishment on South High Street (probably in the low street numbers like the 3,4,5,or 6 hundred blocks. 
North of Main Street).  I believe it was called Franks Coney Island’s.  The meat was a dry dark meat that was not wet.  
It was very fine and crumbly and did not have a tomato based taste.  We have been unable to duplicate the taste.  
We were back in Columbus a few years ago and the establishment had changed hands and were using a complete different recipe.  
It did not have the same taste as the recipe from the 50’s and 60’s (possibly into the early 70’s)  We would sure love to have that taste again.  
Thanks and regards,  

Hello Myron,

I was unable to find any mention of a “Frank’s Coney island” or anything similar (Frank’s Coneys”, “Frank’s Hot Dogs”, etc) on High Street in Columbus, OH in a general web search. There is a “Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace”, but it’s on 4th street, and there’s no sign that it was ever on South High Street.

There is a great website at Columbus Restaurant History. This site is attempting to compile a list of all the restaurants that have been in Columbus, OH, at least since the 1940s. Kudos to them. They have made lists of all the restaurants that were listed in the yellow pages in the phone books from 1940, 1951, 1964, and 1973 for starters. I checked the yellow page listings on that site for 1951 and 1964, since that is the time period that you give. There was no “Frank’s Coney Island” on South High Street in either of those years. There was a “Frank & Tiny’s Bar” at 910 S. High Street, but there is no indication that they sold Coneys. There was a place called “Ideal Coney Island” at 397 S. High Street in 1964, according to the 1964 yellow pages. Perhaps that’s the place? See:
Restaurants in the 1964 Columbus, Ohio Yellow Pages

If Ideal Coney Island was the place, then I’m sorry to say that I had no success finding a recipe or even a description of their coney sauce.
