A good basic recipe however the oil definitely needs to be cut back. I think the confusion about the "creamy" part of the dressing is due to the wording. The dressing really isn't supposed to become creamy so to speak but "emulsified". In order to achieve this you must DRIZZLE the oil into your food processor or blender very very slowly. If a creamy consistancy is what you prefer there are other recipes on this site that call for mayo. Thanks Michelle! Read More

I'm sorry but this recipe is horrible...it is way too oily and it does not get creamy...at least it didn't for me. Maybe some anchovy paste would help? Read More

I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was great. My only suggestion is to use the juice of a 1/2 lemon instead of a whole. Very good! Read More

The garlic taste is a bit overwhelming but good. If you don't like a whole lot of garlic cut it down a bit and it tastes just as good! Read More

Very strong dressing. 1/2 cup of oil is way too much for a good sized salad for 2. Read More

1/2 cup of oil was for 6 people you need to pay attention to the amount of people it serves. We thaught this was a good tasting dressing. Needs to be blended right before serving. Read More
