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.



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.



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?
