Comments on this Recipe

This looks yummy

Looks so simple n tasty

Looking forward to trying this

Looks good!

Interesting, though the ingredients make me wonder...for a dressing?? Must try..

Lovely

Not so sure about the maple syrup as I am not a maple syrup fan... Does it need to be sweet? could i use sugar, regular sugar that is...

I just made a dressing almost identical to the for the detox I'm on! No sweeteners for me right now, but I added garlic to mine and it's an amazing dressing. It does have a slight bitterness though, which it bet the maple syrup will help modify. I look forward to trying this recipe with the little sweetness added to it when I'm done. I'd never add sugar. Never. Honey, maybe....

I've been using coconut sugar and unpasteurized honey to replace all sweeteners---they're great, and the coconut sugar is not as sweet as regular sugar. this dressing sounds fantastic--can't wait to try it!

Awesome, Thank-you!

I just made this green-on-green salad dressing and it has no flavor. I added salt &amp; pepper 3 times and still couldn't enhance the flavor.

I think I'm going to add garlic like another comment, to have a little more flavor, but then depending on what kind of salad you are having jalapeno might a good addition too, or some other spice.

How long will this last in the fridge?

It would be really great to add a pin it button on your recipes, it would make it easier to save and share them.

What can be substitute for dill?
