This is my type of salad dressing as it is savory and not sweet. I personally can’t stand sweet dressings but that’s just me! I just love the festive color and flavors of this vinaigrette, it is divine and beautiful at the same time!
I love to make up salad dressings, plus they are so easy without all the preservatives, soy bean oil and or canola oil.
Not to mention it’s a fraction of the cost.
