This dressing is so popular in our house that I always keep a bottle in the fridge. Besides drizzling it on greens, I use it to top off my cold pasta salads.—Cindy Reams, Philipsburg, Pennsylvania

"This dressing was fantastic! I added feta and raisins to the salad. I also used pomegranate wine vinegar. It was served at two different gatherings lately, and both received several requests for the salad and got lots of rave reviews. It has become a staple in the fridge, and much cheaper to make than buying prepared dressings at the grocery."
