Rated 5 out of 5 by Bethy from Suoer tasty The dressing is really good, tbh one does nkt need a vitamix for it. I heated the vinegar and sugar together in a pot on the stove to dissolve. I think black sesame seeds would make a better effect visually. And it could handle cilantro. I did just as the recipe said as far as ingredients and it was really tasty

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mamoo from Great tasting This is a great tasting light salad. My family loved it, and they don't always love healthy. I made it by the recipe. Wouldn't change a thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rescuemom from Love it I make the dressing all the time and add a little hot pepper to it and use it on tomato, cucumber and pasta salad.
