excellent! used red wine vinegar instead of the sherry one, pine nuts are great on this. Delicious hot or cold.

Yes, please don't make this as it is for a vegan - honey is not vegan. It's not being fussy, it's like what's halal is halal, and what's vegan is vegan. It does look yummy and I'd try the agave nectar, or maple syrup as a substitute.

I'm going to try this with agave nectar instead of honey, although this recipe is in the vegan category honey isn't vegan.

Can you recommend another dressing if you don't have sherry vinegar?

Very good recipe I used it with roast duck legs but would go with any sort of meat or fish.
