    First of all, this recipe includes lemon juice and olive oil. So to me it wasn't surprising to taste olive oil and lemon in the dressing. It tastes excellent. I doubled the recipe to feed 7 people. Made it overnight and just mixed it in with the salad the next day. Really good. Combination of sweet and citris tastes. Not as olive oily tasting as you would think, it's a mild olive oil taste. Unless you mess up the recipe and add too much oil.  -  25 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a good starter recipe. You can add more spices if you want. I think anything taste better with garlic. I like it the way it is when my tabouli recipe calls for olive oil and lemon--I just use this dressing instead. It gives the recipe more zip.  -  17 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    refreshing and delicious, as well as easy and fast to prepare. My boyfriend who's not a big salad fan cleaned his bowl  -  21 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
