      I changed the salad around quite a lot, but followed the recipe for the dressing, so the rating is for the dressing. I used the dressing on a salad of briefly cooked green asparagus, avocado, thinly sliced cucumber and cooked sweet potato chunks. I spooned the dressing on top of the vegetables, rather than mixing it in. I was very happy with the flavor, and will make this dressing again. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.

      This has been on my to-do list for some time now and I do apologize! I made it yesterday for a BBQ at the neighbor's house. I didn't love the dressing and it actually made the salad kind of ugly LOL. I did love the mix of veggies and next time I think I will just use my normal Italian dressing on it and call it a day! Thanks for posting, Pat!
