If you're lazy like me, or very scared to use eggs or serve raw eggs- omit the egg and egg whites, cut the canola oil in half. use 1/2 cup of mayonaise instead.

very easy to make, and it has a wonderful flaver. Great on spinach salad.

I used this for an intimate catering event after winter broke. I used an olive/canola oil mix, and used just over half of the recommended amount. I also eliminated the egg yolk, and used two whites. I cut some cantaloupe and honeydew for the salad, saved the juice, and processed it with the rest of the mixture. Due to the sweetness of the dressing, I recommend juxtaposing a spicy aromatic with a side dish; in my case I curried up some sauteed sugar snap peas. Make sure your guests know you used raw egg products!

Very good- I used fresh meyer lemons and oranges right from the tree along with a store bought lime added fresh garlic, cilantro(as recommended by someone else) and decided to add some apple cider vinegar that took it to another level!(I also used less sugar because the fresh lemons and oranges were so sweet already)

Very good! I cut the sugar in half and it was still sweet enough. I did as another suggested and used some mayo instead of the egg and some of the oil. Thanks for the recipe!

I used the recommended amt of sugar, but I agree with other reviews that less would be better. I also added garlic powder along with crushed red pepper and poppy seeds. I placed grilled pineapple slices on top of a bed of spinach greens with red pepper,sweet white onions, and cherry tomatoes. Drizzle dressing on top.Yummy!

I was going to cut the sugar as someone suggested and try, but I got caught up and forgot all about it. Way too sweet (for us.) The recipe is really mayo based so I will use that next time (real mayo.) I think I will sub part Greek yogurt with the mayo and have it healthier. Fruit salad would definitely be good with a less sweet version. Overall great potential... just a little tweaking.
