I found this a little heavy on the acid side with all the lemon juice. However, it is light which can be a nice alternative to other dressings.

Delicious!!! You'll definitely have to give this one a go. It goes beautifully drizzled over a salad. I made mine in the food processor and slowly poured in the oil at the end. However, you'll probably be better off making it in a bowl, as instructed, because in my case the honey sank to the bottom and didn't get thoroughly incorporated (maybe I just need a new food processor). Other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter and just in case you're wondering (like I was): 1 teaspoon lemon zest = almost an entire medium lemon; 4 tablespoons lemon juice = one whole medium lemon

This is an absolutely wonderful fresh tasting dressing. Try it on steamed potatoes.

This was delicious! I didn't have parsley and used fresh basil instead. Will make a fantastic Holiday salad dressing. I will try making it sugar free next time (splenda).

quick & easy dressing! fabulous flavor! you don't need to add the parsley. actually, i love curly parsley so much that i usually add at least a cupful to my salad greens, so i did not add any to the dressing. this will be my go-to dressing from here on out...i don't serve the salad with anything, just make a huge one and sometimes add bite-size pieces of chicken breast so it's a meal in-and-of itself!
