Wishbone Salad DressingIn 1945, Phillip Sollomi opened a restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri. Chicken was his specialty and so he named his restaurant "The Wishbone".
In 1948, Phil asked his mother for the recipe for her spicy salad dressing, which originated from her native Sicily. He went on to create "The Kansas City Wishbone Famous Italian Style Dressing". The name was later shortened to Wishbone Salad Dressing.
Phillip Sollomi sold his business to Lipton in 1957. Lipton still makes the famous salad dressings in Kansas City, Missouri.
