  • I'm not rating it because I didn't really make the whole recipe, but I used the dressing with pinto beans and put them over spaghetti squash and it was really yummy! - 8/31/11

  • I also found this recipe on 101cookbooks.com and absolutely loved it! It tastes very light and fresh, but is quite filling. I grab a few spoonfuls for a snack here and there. Next time I think I will make 1.5x the dressing. - 8/10/10

    I agree, a little extra dressing might be nice.
