"This recipe is super tasty. The only changes I made was using fresh squeezed orange juice, balsamic vinegar and added a clove of garlic that was minced and pasted with a tad of salt to help break it down."

"One of my favorite salads ever was made by TGIF's, Cajun Fried chicken salad, and came with a crock of Hot Bacon and Honey Mustard Dressing. It was the best. They stopped making it and I looked around for the dressing recipe and happened upon this one. It is very much like TGIF's, however, their dressing was a bit more spicy. My family loves this dressing and I make a batch at least once a month. Delicious!"
