Pretty good

Seemed a little oily but I liked the sweetness of the honey.  I think it would be best with a salad that has fruit - strawberries, peaches, pears, etc.  The calories are obviously calculated incorrectly.  My Fitness Pal put it at 77 calories per tablespoon.

I've made this twice now, the first time with dried herbs, the second with fresh. It is MUCH better with fresh herbs. I also cut the recipe by 3/4 as it doesn't keep long at all. It complements the Spring Salad well, and I agree that one could probably do with less than 2T - the Spring Salad recipe actually calls for 1/4 cup divided among 4 servings. And the fat content may be high, but it is healthy fat and 80 calories isn't much for 1T dressing, considering. Now that I've rediscovered this recipe I may well keep it on the regular rotation.

Woah! Cooking Light--what the heck?!? Yes, of course it's delicious...but over 17 grams of fat for 2 tablespoons! How is recipe possibly considered light or remotely healthy?

This is one of the best dressings I've ever made. It also keeps nicely for later use. Can also use regular honey if you don't have the sunflower honey.

Quick and easy and doesn't disappoint. It is very flavorful and you don't need much. I too cut my recipe in half as 1 2/3 cup seemed like a lot of dressing.
