Terrific! Whenever I take it to a party or potluck, this bowl is always the first one empty! I follow directions exactly, but substitute stoneground mustard for dijon. Perfect every time and always get asked for the recipe wherever I take it.

I was looking for a spinach salad recipe that wasn't the standard. The beans and red peppers added great flavor and texture. I didn't have real maple syrup and had to use the fake stuff. Therefore, the dressing wasn't quite as good as it might have been. This is definitely worth having again once I get the good stuff.
