      I just made this dressing, and although skeptical, decided that since the portion was small, it would be okay to get rid of if it didn't work. Good thing the portions were small! These flavors didn't work at all. If I had used real maple syrup and the proportions were better, however, it may have tasted enough to get a star or two.....NO STARS FROM ME!
