I only made the dressing, but it was very good. I had some leftover Cod and put it on salad greens with this dressing and it made an excellent meal. The dressing is a lot like Thousand Island, but is a bit more spicy and less sweet. Would definitely make again when I am in the mood for something like this. Read More
