    If an ingredient in a recipe is one you don't like, I think it's unfair to give a low rating to a recipe, because your dislike is based on that ingredient and not on the quality of the recipe. Why don't you just skip rating and commenting. At this is my take on the subject. - 1/25/09

    Personally I don't like the salad or the dressing but my guests loved both. I used half the dressing to marinate tuna steaks then grilled them. Everyone raved about this delightful gourmet meal. - 1/29/11
