I first experienced this great dressing at Neiman Marcus in St. Louis and fell in love with it. Years later I was fortunate enough to run across it in a book of restaurant recipes. Everyone I've served this to has just raved about it and requested a copy of the recipe. Enjoy!

Also, for a more dessert-like slant, you can add a little cream at serving time.
