Tastes good, quick to make and perfect for a basic tossed salad. Subbed agave nectar for the honey. Be sure to shake well before serving. Thanks, Dancer^.

I made this dressing to go with my yummy salad of fresh greens, strawberries, walnuts, goat cheese, vadalia onions and tiny grape tomatoes. It was excellent! It really complimented my shrimp dish too. Thanks Dancer!

Another good one Dancer^. I like the idea of using citrus juice in lieu of vinegar occasionally. Great on a green salad.
