This Dressing is good but not Great. I found it to be lacking some zip. I added a tablespoon Dijon Mustard and it really helped. Also a little cracked black pepper finished it off. My guests really liked it on a mixed field greens salad with mandrian oranges and sugared pecans. Read More

rating based on recipe as written: insipid and a little cloying. with a little monkeying around ended up with a 5 star product. My orange was pretty sweet so subbed a pinch of stevia for 1 tsp sugar. There's almost no acidity in recipe so I added 1 Tbl rice wine vinegar. Following advice of previous reviewer added a little cracked black pepper. Let sit a couple hours and had a great dressing for tangy mesclun and grilled chicken paillard. But I can't stand people who change a recipe beyond recognition then rate it 5 stars because they ended up with something good. People can't we rate the written recipe not our experimentation?

I liked this recipe and have added it to my box. I wanted a bit more kick so I put in an extra pinch of cayenne and cinnamon. Also I omitted the dried orange peel because I didn't have any on hand. I served it over spinach with mandarin oranges and walnuts. Next time though I will use less orange juice - it was a bit much with the mandarin oranges. Read More

Sorry - I gave it a go despite some low reviews but in the end I had to leave it on the table. I made it as written - the cinnamon was a real turnoff for myself and my husband but even without it I'm not sure it would have been good on salad. Maybe better as sauce on chicken or something? Read More
