    WOW! WOW! WOW! This is a keeper, too, Michelle. Thanks so much! The only thing I changed was to lessen the dijon by 2T and add an additional 1t of vinegar because Gato's comment, "A little too much Dijon." So, if you don't LOVE it, cut back! (Same for the honey. Gato loves it but I'm not into the sweet.) MADE FOR PAC FALL 07
