"This was delicious! I used what I had on hand, so tangelos for oranges, honey mustard for Dijon, and pecans and almonds for walnuts. Also used only 1/4 tsp (white) pepper. The dressing was still delicious and my husband said he would like it again, even though I was afraid he'd think it was something to serve at only a women's luncheon! A keeper of a recipe."
