We really liked this. It was quick to make and very light for a summer dinner as opposed to the heavy creamy poppy seed dressing found in the store. I made a spinach, strawberry, red onion and grilled chicken salad and it was perfect on it. I followed the recipe exactly. I try to make all of my salad dressings as the store bought ones have so many preservatives and chemicals and I find home made dressings much lighter and definitely better for you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quick, Easy. I didn't have fresh lime so, used bottled juice instead; didn't have dry mustard (why I don't know---searched twice!) used Maille dijon. Very tasty. Not too sweet-just right. item not reviewed by moderator and published
