This was just okay for me. I thought it was a little bland. Not sure how I would make it better, but something was definitely missing.

I made a reduced amount to serve today on a chef's salad. While tasty, I will eliminate some of the water & cornstarch next time. Made for Spring '09 Pick A Chef

I looked for this recipe for a long long time and this was a good one! Very tasty. The only thing I did differently was add the bacon crumbles to the dressing so that they were also warm....soooooo good!
