Great dressing...I think it would also be good in a potato salad. Light and very tasty and I like that it uses so many fresh additions, in a pinch I'm sure dried herbs would be fine too. I used the amount of sugar called for and am finding it pretty sweet, so next time I'd probably half that. I also added slightly more vinegar for a bit more zing. Thanks for posting! ZWT6
