    I love it, but too much liquid and I have to drain it out. Maybe need to reduce orange juice to 1/2 cup instead 1-1/4 cups.

    My family and friends thought this was delicious! I thought it was too much dressing, next time I make it I will probably make half the amount. It kept well for several days.

    tasty- holds up well, even 2 days in fridge...Used Fruit Fresh on apples to prevent browning and I doubled the grapes.

    The dressing is the ingredients that are combined in the sauce pan.
