Delicious! I thought the garlic somewhat overpowered the other flavors, but my husband said it was perfect, so next time I'll probably just crush one clove instead of the three it took to make a teaspoon. This is going to be my standard Catalina type dressing as it has much less sugar and a pungent blend of spices.
