    Wow, just made this and it was really great! I doubled the amount of fresh lemon juice and added a bit more onion powder and honey and the end result was just fabulous. I also substituted extra virgin olive oil as I had no grape seed oil on hand. I served the dressing on a Greek salad made of spinach, chopped orange bell peppers, kirby cukes, red onion, feta, kalamata olives and tomatos from our garden. The dressing has a great fresh and balanced taste with a bright, sweet and flavorful balance. Thanks for making this great dressing recipe available as it will be a regular at our table!  -  04 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
