    Nice, light salad dressing, pretty on the plate. Served following CL's chicken with lemon-leek linguine. Very good.

    Light and flavorful - served with Tomato Citrus Salmon and it was a great compliment.

    Wonderful! Used regular lemons and added 1 tsp honey. Used walnut oil instead of olive for a lighter taste. This will be my go to salad dressing for winter greens.

    I made this salad as directed using regular lemon & a pinch of sugar. Hubby said it was too tart. I agree. I loved the goat cheese & pears tho, they were lovey.

    Very good and light. Perfect summer salad. I increased the amounts for the dressing then let everyone use what they wanted. Be careful of the salt it seemed a bit to salty at first till I diluted it with more of the other ingredients. Used Feta cheese since we had it already. Also if using a spring mix I found the Butter lettuce to be unnecessary, it just disappears in the mix.

    This vinaigrette is amazing! that's basically what we used this recipe for; totally adapted the salad - grilled chicken, toasted pecans, spinach and asian pair. delicious!

    This was probably too salty for MarkSZ because of the feta which is a pretty salty cheese. A chevre or other goat cheese is mild and creamy and should take the bite out of the tart lemon.
