I haven't made the salad but the dressing is DIVINE!!!

Both salt and sweeteners cut the acidity of lemon. I'd add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of agave nectar.

I just tried the lemon dressing yesterday. It was heavy on the oil, otherwise, fantastic. I will cut down on the oil next time but I wish I knew of an oil substitue that would cut down on the lemon's acidity.
