  • Incredible!

    This was absolutely delicious. The dressing is extremely flavorful, so even though it doesn't look like much, it is plenty to dress the greens. I used canned beets as a shortcut, and the sweetness of the beets really complemented the sharpness of the dressing. This is a keeper! - 3/30/10

  • So yummy. I will definitely make this again!
    I made two changes because I used what was on hand-I used peanut oil in place of sesame as I was currently out. Secondly I used field green in place of spinach.
    Thanks so much for the recipe! - 5/16/11
