This recipe was featured in the Valentine’s Day suggestions in Vegetarian Entertaining by Vegetarian Times. The kiwi-honey vinaigrette brought a hint of summer in the dark cold winter. It’s pretty thick so a little bit of the dressing goes a long way.

  1. So was the Vegetarian Times’ suggestion that one make this for someone else on Feb. 14th, or to request it of someone?!

    I love kiwis, but had never thought of them a main ingredient for a salad dressing. I have them in salads all the time, so I suppose that’s a logical next step, though.

    Do you have any other [favorite] dressings? I could get by on vinegar alone, every time, but wouldn’t mind a change now and then, especially when we have people over (not everyone is as enamored of vinegar as I am, apparently).

  2. Request it, of course… :)

    I have a recipe for a green goddess dressing. (I fell in love with a version of that dressing from an organic lunch place during a summer stint in New York City.) I’ll try to make it soon. I grew up eating Grammy’s Salad Dressing but usually just throw balsamic vinegar and fresh ground pepper and I’m good to go.
