like this zesty dressing. it was so easy. I had to used dried parsley since the last cold snap burned my parsley. I added a few drops of my daughters home made honey and it is so good. I did added a little extra olive oil to make it go a little further. the little I had left over, I mixed with spoonful Greek yogurt and made a tasty sandwich spread for left over roasted chicken.
