This dressing is fabulous! I actually really dislike salads, but as my husband really needs to lose weight, I've been trying to include more of them in our diet. This dressing made the salad one I actually enjoyed, which is saying a lot. I used red wine vinegar.

The dressing smells REALLY strong, but don't be fooled, it is not overpowering and the flavors compliment each other very nicely! I used cherry tomatoes. Thanks for a great easy salad!

Wow. So I thought I would miss the oil...no way! I used my pear-infused white balsamic for the vinegar. I chopped Braeburn apples as the option (not the tomato option). I chopped the spinach (and used it like a slaw). So fresh and yummy. This will be fabulous with your plum pork! Thanks Jen.
