Oh yum!! I took this to a work potluck & everyone really liked it. I didn't have the full amount of honey or the shallot but the dressing was still wonderful. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Nice flavor but mine was very thick. I think next time I'll just use a whisk instead of the processor. Read More

Great recipe! I didn't have any shallots but this dressing is incredible! I was lazy and just put all the ingredients for the dressing in a Tupperware container and shook it up really good and it emulsified pretty good. Some leftover chicken would be great on top of this too! Thank you for a great recipe Emily! Read More

this is quick and easy and a great fresh salad. Definitely serve the dressing on the side as the lettuce will wilt quickly. Read More
