I really liked this dressing. I'm trying to watch my calories so I didn't add 1/2 cup of oil as the recipe called for. I added 1/8 of a cup and it still tasted good to me. Don't skip the honey because that's what adds just a touch of sweetness to it. Read More

Too much vinegar and Dijon as written. Back off on the vinegar to a ratio of 3:1 oil to vinegar reduce Dijon to 1-2 teaspoons and use only about half as much honey and this is perfect. Read More

Perfect! Just what I was looking for. This dressing has just the right balance of zip and sweet. I love vinegar and didn't think it was too strong at all. This dressing would go great on a variety of different salad ingredients. I used a combo of baby spinach tomatoes carrots and cheddar cheese. Delish! Read More

I chose to try this recipe because it was quick and simple and I was in a hurry. It tasted REALLY GOOD but the vinegar was a bit overpowering. Maybe I'll put less in next time. For a quick and easy dressing I really enjoyed it - thank you! Read More

Perfect...but to make it even more perfect try walnut or grapeseed oils. It will be much "lighter" in taste. Also this works best if made in a mini food processor because it emulsifies that way. I used the "whipped" honey last time. It's very thick and adds a richness. Read More

This was great but for a little texture try adding a few poppy seeds! I also heated the honey for easy mixing and kept it on the counter so it didn't thicken to a paste. Read More

fast easy really yummy and a little different from the ordinary. I never buy the processed grocery store stuff anymore now that I have discovered how simple it is to make a great dressing at home and how much better the fresh stuff is! Read More

Balsamic was a little strong felt like it overpowered everything else. I like balsamic so I didn't mind to much. but might try to dilute it down a bit with more oil and honey. Read More
