This dressing has been a favorite for so many years. It is not only delicious on salad greens but on steamed or roasted vegetables, cooked salmon, etc. I often give it as a gift in a pretty jar along with some homemade croutons. It comes together in a jiffy and you'll never want to buy commercial dressing again after tasting this one! —sticksnscones

Excellent recipe. I made this with our CSA Delicata and some Butternut squash. The salad was so tasty. The dressing was a smash hit and I'm so glad I have extra to use on tomorrow night's salad.
