"Wonderful combination of sweet, savory, and crunchy. The vinaigrette was surprisingly simple and so delicious. I maple-glazed my walnuts, which added sweetness and texture to the salad. Will be making this again!"

"Very good vinaigrette with the surprise taste of maple. I used only 1 tablespoon spicey brown mustard to soften the flavor and to emphasize the maple flavor."

"Very good!! I used olive oil and dijon mustard instead. I also didn't use nuts because I didn't have any, but it was still really good. I took it to a cook out and had many people ask for the recipe:)"
