I liked this a lot. I don't know if the pectin did much but it didn't hurt anything, either. I served this over a simple romaine/mandarin orange/scallion salad & everyone loved the flavors. A keeper!! Thanks, Paula! Made for abandoned tags game.

I did like this but found it to be missing something! I understand that this is 0 fat dressing but think maybe lemon zest, garlic or ginger would have kicked it up. Also the fact I now have a packet of open pectin needing to be used???? I served over red leaf lettuce and fresh orange slices.
