    Soooooo yummy. The only changes I made was substituting apple cider vinegar for red wine vinegar, canola oil for olive oil - less about 1 tablespoon, adding a tablespoon of toasted sesame oil, and adding about 1 tablespoon of chopped chives. Adding nutritional yeast will thicken it if you find it too thin, but I did not find that necessary. I thought the consistency was perfect the way it is. Very much like Goddess dressing.  -  29 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We could not stop eating this! We had fondue and dipped everything from vegetables to meats, breads and crackers!  -  25 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    fantastic! I love how it is creamy without using dairy. I added a bit of lemon zest... really just for the scent (on my hands and in the dressing!) thanks  -  09 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
