I have a question regarding the dressing for this recipe. From what I am reading the ingredients for the dressing are added individually and not mixed together before adding. Am I correct? It is suggested that extra dressing be made - it would seem in that instance the ingredients would have to be mixed together before adding. Please clarify. Thanks!
