Very tasty. I made it with agave nectar instead of honey.

Really great, fat free dressing. I might add some pepper in the future to give it more of a kick.

There is no sugar or sweetner listed among ingredients, but there is a note at the bottom saying the recipe was tested with Splenda brown sugar. How much?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 10, 2009

I have an orange poppy seed dressing that contains fruit pectin as the thickening agent.

Stir together the following ingredients in a small bowl:

1/3 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon powdered fruit

pectin

1/4 teaspoon finely grated

orange peel

1/4 teaspoon poppy seed.

Cover and refrigerate at least three hours before serving.
