    Next time, I would decrease the oil a bit. The parsley was a nice addition.

    I omitted the parley and added 2 teaspoons of poppy seeds instead. I also added 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard. This is my husband's favorite salad dressing.

    I make this all the time and everyone loves it. I just use less sugar than called for.
