Great recipe Diana...I substituted Red Wine Vinegar with fresh lime juice and the dish tasted just perfect. Not to forget the added bonus of low cals as well! :-) Mini I could savour them without guilt.

Very nice vinaigrette!! Wonderfull on the carrots, made these this morning for supper tonight, couldn't resist tasting ahead of time, it is a great combination of flavours that compliment the carrots. These will go on my list for over the holiday season, thanks for sharing Di!!
