  1. I may use honey instead of the agave, just because of stock on hand. But thanks for that recipe. I love all those ingredients and am in dire need of something new salad wise. This will totally fit the bill 🙂

  2. Yes, more often honey is available in our house. I purchased the Agave as a treat since I’ve never used it before and had heard so many wonderful comments about it. A little honey would be perfect and a little less expensive as an ingredient.
