    Sharon123's Note:

    I just bought a 3 pound bag of almonds from Sam's club and this dressing is a wonderful way to use them! I hope you enjoy! This dressing thickens up after sitting for a few minutes, so you could actually use less oil(3/4 cup) and the rest water or maybe apple juice and it would be just as good and less calories! The dressing also makes a great dip!

      This was a really satisfying salad although my dressing came out a little thinner than I expected. Next time I will use more almonds and also reduce the sweetener (I used agave nectar instead of honey). It's interesting that The Wallaces wanted it sweeter, because I thought it was entirely too sweet. I also had a lot of leftover dressing. I agree with Maito that less oil could be used. The combination of veggies was really lovely. I enjoyed this as part of a raw food experiment, but it would also be a perfect starter when entertaining guests. Reviewed fro Veg*an Swap, June 2010

      I loved the combination of veggies in this salad! The dressing was good, but next time I will lower the amount of lemon juice and increase the honey, as I prefer my dressings a little sweeter. I used 3/4 c of oil to tone down the lemon. Thanks Sharon for a great salad recipe! Made for Holiday tag.

      I really liked the combination of the lemon, almond and avocado in this salad. I used a third of the honey, and only a fourth of the oil, and it worked fine. If you are trying to lower the fat, I don't think you necessarily need the full amount of the oil.
