I always order their salads, too! I made this for a dinner party and it got lots of compliments. I My second batch was for my family and my daughter particularly enjoyed this dressing! I did add a 3 cloves of garlic and 2 tbs. sugar (since I prefer a sweeter dressing) and was very satisfied with the result. This is good with feta, too. I will make this often!

I just made this again last night with ALL of the correct ingredients this time. Previously I thought this was good and deserved 5 stars, but now I think it's worth at least 10!!!! Reminds me of a dressing at a fusion-style restaraunt I used to work at. SO GOOD!!!! Thanks! This was really good. Unfortunately I couldn't find champagne vinegar so I used white wine vinegar instead. It was still really good, but can't wait to try it again with the correct ingredients.
