I made this last night to go on spinach, red onion, mandarin oranges, and toasted slivered almonds. I added more garlic,a couple tablesoons vinegar, fresh basil (didn't feel that the dried was shining through). After having it for lunch today, I suggest making the dressing a day in advance, since it greatly improved the flavor.It did get thicker upon standing, too. I might add less orange juice next time, since I felt it overpowered the other ingredients. I do think that it would be worth it to think about extra flavor combinations in your salad to make it really standout (avocado and bacon, like previous reviewer. I really liked how it flavored the spincah. Roxygirl in Colo.
