Loved the dressing! It would make a great side dish for the summer.
I loved it. People asked for the recipe. My husband wasn't too keen on it, but he thought it was okay.
Maybe I did something wrong, but this basically tasted like salad with a side of lentils mixed in. I want to make it again because it's good for you and I'd like to give it another go, but no one in the family raved about it or asked for it again!
I made this recipe for a party and got rave reviews.
Absolutely delicious!! I didn't have honey so I used Karo syrup.
