This dressing also tastes wonderful on cold pasta. It actually is best to use dried basil in this recipe, because fresh basil will turn a funny color.

Very tasty! I'll make it again but with a touch less vinegar as it had a little too much for my taste. Read More

This was okay but I ended up doing so much additional adding I think it ends up being a new recipe. I didn't have white wine vinegar so used red wine vinegar. I followed the directions exactly and it was way too sour so I added another tablespoon of sugar. I think didn't think it had enough taste so I added a couple of cloves of garlic and some red pepper flakes for kick. It ended up okay like I said but was still just missing something. Plus the basil taste was a little strong for me. Read More

Delicious! I used regular white vinegar olive oil and mustard seed instead (because that's what I had). Will make again! Read More

Nice dressing but for my tastes I think olive oil instead of vegetable oil and some chopped garlic would have improved it. It had just the right amount of vinegar/pungency for me. Read More
