  • “What a wonderful dressing and a delightful change from the “normal” vinaigrettes. I substituted nonfat lemon yogurt and threw in some lemon zest. Poured it over a hearty veggie salad and mmmmmm…..Very nice recipe – thanks for sharing.”

  • “This is now my favourite dressing! Fresh and light tasting with the right amount of tang. I used lime juice instead of lemon juice.”

  • “I paired this recipe with Bergy’s Spinach-Mushroom Salad and what a combination!! The taste was really unexpected and very very good.As Miller pointed out this recipe is indeed delightfully different from the “normal” vinaigrettes. I can envision this dressing being used as a ‘sauce’ for fish as well. I found this recipe to be extremely tasty and potentially very versatile as well.Thank you Bergy.(prepared for the “COOKOUT” Cookathon July 1st – July 4th 2002)”
