wonderful dressing!

I made a double batch, and since nobody in my family is a fan of dill I used fresh parsley and chives, plus a little ground chipotle. It was great on the spinach salad, but incredible on a romaine/ tomato salad the following day.

easy to make, delicious
Dill is strange in this

The next time I make this I'm going to leave out the dill. I thought that was a weird herb to use considering the other ingredients. I'm think maybe garam masala or chili powder & cumin or curry powder.

healthy, light
This recipe is a keeper!

I didn't have any dill, so I used fresh tarragon from my garden - fantastic flavor! I also don't have garlic powder, so I added 1 smallish clove of garlic. I added grape tomatoes and some leftover grilled chicken from last night's dinner and made it a meal.

fast, fresh, super-healthy
Tip:Double the spice

This is a very mild-tasting salad. To bring out the flavor a bit more I added an extra tablespoon of fresh dill and a fresh garlic clove to the salad dressing, and then added freshly ground salt to the top of each salad before serving.
