This has a very nice flavor. The honey mixed with cucumber is really good. I let the mixture get very smooth and used the sunflower seeds as a topping. Nice crunch! We used it on a salad of spinach and tomatoes. Thanks Sharon!
Light and delicious! I cut this recipe down to a 1/2 cup yield and it worked marverlously. Since I have a dietary restriction regarding sunflower seeds(very high in potassium which is toxic to me in high amounts), I replaced them with 2 tbsp of chopped walnuts. It managed to give it that nutty quality and still held the integrity of the dressing. I highly recommend this dressing to anyone who's sick of the bottled junk! Thanks Sharon123
What an interesting and tasty dressing.The other reviewers' comments are useful (marinade is a great idea). I made 1/3 of a recipe, because that's all my mini food processor will hold. I added salt and more dill. I like it the way it is, but I still think one elusive ingredient is missing. It's on the tip of my tongue, but isn't. Wonder what it is. Let you know when I figure it out. Made and enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.
This dish pleasantly surprised me. When first made, I tasted & thought the garlic overpowered everything else. After it sat in the fridge for 3 hours, the flavors balanced out perfectly. I also made a marinade for chicken breasts, omitting the cucumbers & sunflower seeds. Both were excellent for our light summer supper. Thanks for sharing!
I prepared this last night for this week's salads..very good...and it didn't even have a chance for the flavors to meld...since I needed to put the ingredients in the Vita Mix...I went ahead and used a garlic clove instead of powder. Thank you Sharon!
This dressing is very light and is perfect over fresh greens and tomatoes. I also used the sunflower seeds to garnish the salad instead of adding it to the dressing.
