Awesome! I found I preferred the dressing with a bit less oil. Leftovers were delicious on a sandwich the next day.

This is delicious - the way it's presented in the photo is the best for serving. If you mix it in a salad bowl everything turns purple and one color.

This is wonderful. I always have to add a little sugar/splenda to my vinaigrette recipes because the are to tart for me. This one is wonderful. I just added a little water to thin it down a little. I love it!!!
