Steve: I bought the dressing at HyVee on 180th & Pacific. Your product was on the bottom shelf! I think you should request to be moved up a few shelves! We heard so many compliments on the dinner Monday evening and the salad brought a lot of conversation. When our next company newsletter goes out, we are going to let people know about your dressing, where it can be bought and how to make the salad!

Steve, got the dressing and had it at our judges', bailiffs', court reporters' annual xmas lunch last Friday.  Tasted just like the original and as you can guess we ran out of the salad.  
Thanks and have a merry Christmas!

I can't find a Reuben that comes anywhere close to the OPC fare. I'm actually going to be in Omaha this week to load up my family and drive back to Madison. Take Care. Joe R  (The Omaha Press Club uses Villamonte's Reuben dressing)

April 20, 2013, Union Pacific celebrated the retirement of one of its employees, my wife, Tina, with a luncheon at the Omaha Press Club. Our first course was the Thunderbird Salad. I had never eaten one before, let alone heard of it, but I can state with unequivocal surety that it is the best salad I have ever had the pleasure of eating. I can't wait to start making my own at home!!!

I live in Lincoln and was wondering if there is someone here that sells the Thunderbird Salad dressing.

I worked at Happy Hollow Club during the 80's and I remember the Thunderbird Salad, there is absolutely none better. Sonja the Salad Lady had it down to a perfection. It also had olives on it (Which I don't like and removed them) . To those who haven't had a Thunderbird, it's like not having a Mai Tai at the Mai Tai Lounge at Mt Fuji Inn.
