"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."
