I love, love, loved the creamy/tangy dressing on this salad! It went great alongside the flavors of salmon, parmesan, and olives (I used kalamata). I made this as 1 serving. In cutting down the qty of ingredients, I wasn't able to use my food processor to mix the little amount of dressing, so I decided to just make 4 servings of dressing. This worked out much better. Now I have leftover dressing for salads the rest of the week! I think that the dressing would also be great with shrimp or in a wrap. Thanks Annacia!
