Nice recipe with some adjustments, Member azmomaj

I really like this recipe, but made a few changes. First, I didn't have raspberry vinegar so I used red wine vinegar. I also find the recipe to be too sweet, so the next time I make it I will adjust the sugar to 1/4 cup. If that doesn't do it, I'll keep decreasing it until I get it right. I used Stevia instead of sugar for health reasons. Also, 1 T of salt is an awful lot, so I used about 3/4 t instead and it's just right. I also added a couple of shakes of black pepper. This is a very good salad dressing to use on taco salads as well as other salads. My family didn't like the whole papaya seeds, so back to the blender it went. It's really good now! I plan to buy some raspberry vinegar to give that a shot, too.
