This dressing is in the Serve It Up! tennis cookbook, which I helped compile with Sharon WIlliams to raise funds for Autism research and the CARD center at U.M.. While it’s suggested in the cookbook to be served on a salad with greens, roasted corn, cherry tomatoes, shredded jack cheese and roasted red pepper (with shrimp or chicken added if desired) it also notes that it’s great on pasta. I think it would make a delicious Pasta Salad with those very ingredients. It is a slightly sweet, very flavorful dressing.
I used this dressing recently to go on a salad with a Mexican Meal of Grilled Pork and Poblano Souffle. In that case, I used sliced Romaine, jicama, red onion, tomatoes, orange slices and pumpkin (pepita) seeds. A very versatile dressing, it also works on salads with Asian meals, or, in Seafood Salads as seen below with arugula, avocado and boiled shrimp. It lasts in the fridge about a week.
