I loved this recipe! I didn't have balsamic vinegar so I used red wine vinegar instead but it still tasted great (so great that I made a double recipe so I could eat it all week). Add chicken and black olives and it makes a wonderful salad!! Read More

I don't know about this one. It had a strange taste to me. I think it was the chicken stock. I will try it again and substitute the chicken stock for dijon mustard. Read More

This went together very easily and quickly. Liked the flavor. Have never added chicken broth to a dressing before and thought I might not like it but everything tasted very good. Might put a little sugar in next time to cut down on the acidity. Read More

So simple and yet soooo good. My husband often asks for me to make the dressing for his regular salads as well. We love garlic so we put extra garlic in the mix but this one is easy and delicious. Read More

Very good but use sparingly because too much ruins the flavour. I added green onion and red and green pepper slices. Read More
