YUM! Great recipe. I do have to confess I didn't use cilantro because I'm not a fan (I know, I'm Hispanic and don't like cilantro - go figure) but I KNOW this dressing would be superb with it for those who are fans. Aside from the missing cilantro, I kept to the rest of the vinaigrette by using a fresh squeezed orange and two cloves of garlic. Note: don't be crabby to find dressing at the bottom of your salad; even with little oil the flavor manages to cling to every bite! A lot of flavor. This is a refreshing change from the usual dressings. Thanks!

Scrumptious! My new fave light...not over powering, yet sweet and full of flavor...I also added a pinch of salt and fresh cracked pepper....and reduced the evoo to 1 tblspn. Thanks for a great dressing!

Absolutely delicious - even with only 1 Tbsp of olive oil, other than that I didn't change a thing! All I had to do was put all the ingredients into a mini food processor and let it go. It has a sweet, tangy citrus flavor that was perfect over mixed greens.

Using fresh Meyer lemon juice (my young tree is finally producing)and some orange juice, this was wonderful. Served over field greens and baby spinach with some mandarin slices and almond slivers, this was delicious.

This was a very light salad dressing. I like a lot, very good flavor but I just thought it was a little too much vinegar. I would try reducing the amount of vinegar next time.

This recipe was great, I used fresh orange juice, but next time I think I may try bought orange juice, for some reason I think it would be more flavorful. Either way, it was quick and easy!

I didn't have rice wine vinegar, so used white and apple cider vinegar. Also, I didn't have cilantro, so that was omitted. Still, a wonderful light, tangy and sweet dressing.
