"Not sure how I feel about this one. I used olive oil instead. I didn't think the flavors other than oil were strong enough. I thought it was a lot of oil (even if I had used canola oil). In fact I cut the oil down to half a cup. I don't think I have made a vinaigrette dressing that used this much oil. So if I make it again I will use even less oil and more of the other ingredients. I felt the dressing was missing something. Not sure what it is though."

"The dressing is called a 'vinaigrette' but it uses lemon juice as an acid instead of vinegar."

"Would any one know how much vinegar you would have to use. I would love to make it, it sounds like it would be very good.

"That's a good question, Terry. I wouldn't have noticed it if you didn't say anything. Makes sense, doesn't it.

TOF, is there?"

"This recipe mentions a light vinaigrette dressing yet there is no vinegar listed in the dressing ingredients. Should there be a correction? Terry"
