SO HOW'D IT GO?

Great dressing and very easy.  Next time I'll add carrots and baby corn.

I think the dressing could use a little more lemon juice.  Next time I make it, I'd probably add some shredded carrot for a bit of color.  Good recipe, though.

This is a great recipe.  It's easy to make and has been a hit each time I've made it.  I've had numerous people ask for the recipe.  I use red cabbage and it looks lovely in a colorful serving bowl.  Thanks for sharing, adagio!

An added note from the recipe's author: it is not intended that you use all of the dressing.  Simply add as much as seems good to you.
