From Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Jane Viliky shares this wonderfully versatile dressing that's a snap to whisk together. "It adds refreshing flavor when drizzled over a seasonal fruit assortment," she reports. "And it's equally tasty if you serve it over lettuce or spinach."

"I can't imagine what I did wrong. Instructions are very clear. This one just did not work out for me. I did cut the amount of sugar and even that was too sweet for our tastes. The sugar never dissolved. Even though it had plenty of counter top resting time. The amount of celery seed was very lacking. It also had way too much oil. Sorry to have such a negative review but no one was more disappointed than I was.

"I grew up between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh and I was searching for a recipe like the one from my favorite restaurant back home. I thought this would come close and it was perfect! Now I don't have to drive 100 miles to get my favorite salad dressing."
