Love it! It has many uses What a delicious dressing! I pair this with grilled chicken that has been marinated in Mojo and serve it atop a bed of lettuce, black beans and tomatoes. I've also served in on a carrot, raisin, apple salad. Have yet to try it on a plain ole bed of greens.

Love it I have been making this with almond oil (as my olive oil was not the best quality) and it is sooo yum

Delicious! This is delicious, and smells as good as it tastes. I used it on a raw veg chopped salad to rave reviews. Pros: Wonderful on a raw veg salad. Easy to adjust seasoning to your taste and to complement your salad.

This is a great basic recipe, but the salt is over powering in my opinion. I cut the salt in half and depending on the dish may add a bit of agave nectar. This goes great over a jicama salad

Does this recipe only make two servings? I believe the salad makes four servings.

weak flavor It's not a vinaigrette without vinegar! I didn't like this at all as is, but loved it after adding about 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup sugar, and just a bit more lime and OJ to up the intensity of the flavor a bit. Pros: easy to adapt to my personal taste Cons: not a vinaigrette
