Good dressing but I can't say it was outstanding. Needs garlic oregano etc. for a little more flavor or zip. Read More

I thought this was going to taste better than I thought it would. Didn't have very much flavor and a full tablespoon of lemon juice made it too tangy or something. Maybe I didn't use the right kind of balsamic vinegar because it just didn't taste right. Read More

Laura thankyou this is a great salad dressing! I did cut the sugar in 1/2 and added 1 crushed garlic clove. I didn't have lemon pepper so I followed another reviewer's advice and used lemon zest and black pepper. This reminded me of a wonderful dressing that my grandma used to make thanks! Read More

This is not only a fabulous dressing (even my kids said so) but a great marinade! Both for chicken and pork chops! I use less than half the oil though otherwise it is perfect. Read More

I tried this dressing a month ago but I only had Garlic vinegar (rice vinegar) instead of balsmic vinegar. IT WAS EXCELLENT! I ate the whole bowl of salad and had to make my husband one for himself. Actually this dressing is the only one I will now eat on my salad and have been able to lose 7 lbs the last month I JUST LOVE THE TASTE OF THIS DRESSING!!!!!!!!!!! Read More

This is one of my favorite dressings! I have made it several times. I like it best using 1/2 of the vinegar (1/4c) as 1/2 cup is too strong. I have also made it with a brown sugar substitute which was good. Read More

I liked this dressing - I halved it and then I added a bit more sugar to satisfy my sweet tooth. My husband felt the balsamic vinegar was a bit too pungent for his tastes - I plan on making it again with either regular vinegar or wine vinegar - and perhaps a bit less than the amount that the recipe called for.

I tried this dressing over a chicken vegetable salad - everything tasted so much different than a bitter vinegar-type dressing. This dressing was sweet. Read More
