This salad was delicious! Guests raved over it and I don't even really like salad but could eat this for a while meal I think. Dressing really has a light sweet tangy flavor with the dijon and the maple.
I made the dressing but not the salad as yet. The dressing is delicious and the sweet and tart flavors are just to my liking. I lowered the fat content considerably and made this vegan by omitting the olive oil and half and half, and substituting Silk coffee creamer for both. Silk has just 1 gram of fat per tablespoon, while oil has about 14 grams. Not sure of the fat content of half and half but Silk has much less. I will be using this on a salad of spinach leaves, mandarin oranges, apple slices, spiced pecans and red onion.
Oops, almost forgot to rate this! Must be honest and tell you that I made the maple dressing but use it on a different green salad. Not a big thing cause it was and is this marvelous sweet and tangy dressing that is to die for! With the dressing I used apple cider vinegar which I highly suggest for health reasons as well as flavor. Well, Ms. Rita, again, a winner!
A great salad dressing- am resubmitting as I made an error in original review. The half and half made it very creamy. Used it on a salad of baby spinach, mesclun, green onions and radishes from the garden with the addition of pine nuts, bacon bits and chunks of old cheddar. Thanks Rita for a dressing I will use frequently
Very good salad which although we had as a side with hot dogs would also be great as a lunch salad with some muffins or bread. The only change I made was instead of button mushrooms (couldn't find any) I used 4 regular mushrooms and a bit more pine nuts. Thanks for sharing!
