Sweet and Spicy Nuts

Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

This is my basic salad dressing recipe, taught to me by a good friend from France. You can change out the oil or vinegar type, add light mayo to make a creamier dressing, use sugar or Splenda instead of honey, add garlic or shallot to give it more of a bite, switch vinegar out for lemon or lime juice, etc. Basic and versatile.
