This dressing is a nice alternative to the raspberry vinaigrettes I have had in the past. Tastes extremely fresh, slightly sweet and orangy with a little kick from the Cayenne pepper. It was a perfect topping for the salad greens I served with a Chicken Cordon Bleu dish and balsamic glazed asparagus. My husband asked to have this dressing on a regular basis... quite a compliment! Thanks for sharing!

Sorry we didn't like it. No real flavor. Sorry.

Pretty nice dressing. Not too sweet, but sweet enough, for me anyway. Works really well with fruit (ie. blueberries, strawberries) in your salad. This will be a keeper for me.

Very light and tasty - this dressing is ideal for a summer salad. It's a little on the thin side, but there is no "thickener" in this recipe, so that's to be expected and actually allows you to use less of it.

It's a slightly runny dressing, but the flavor is amazing. It was absolutely perfect for my citrus marinated chicken and greens salad. Has just enough sweetness with just enough kick. I did not have white-wine vinegar, so I used red-wine vinegar instead, but it turned out beautifully anyway. Just don't use full white vinegar--too much tang that way. Really excellent and pretty simple recipe. I used organic honey, with no ingredients other than 'honey' in it. I highly recommend it for a slightly sweet dressing for any bitter greens or chicken salads.

I did some changes, i used wine vinegar did not have white, a chopped garlic, 2 tablespoon of white sugar and 1 spoon of a dijon mustard it, sweeter but not to much, the garlic did his part....perfect balance

Nice dressing! Fruity, not too sweet, good with the pepper ... I think I will reduce a cup of orange juice first next time, to give it a little more orange juice taste. Will keep this recipe!

AMAZING! I followed the recipe almost exact. I did not use the grated orange peel. I put it on our spinach,feta,sunflower seed, and mandarine orange salad and my picky spinach "hater" couldn't get enough of the salad! And it was so easy!! Thanks for posting!
