Super easy and delicious. Used the bacon bits and pre-packaged hard boiled eggs from Costco (heated up the bacon bits in the microwave first) to cut down on prep time and mess. Fantastic dressing that we ll use on lots of other salads now as well. Read More

In a pinch for time (and realizing that the only onions I had were yellow cooking onions and a red onion that was much too strong) I used Braswell's of Georgia Vidalia and Peppercorn bottled dressing. I hate to admit it but it was better than my home made. Read More

This dressing is the bomb. I put all dressing ingredients in my blender and it made a beautiful creamy dressing that was delicious. I prepped everything a day before so it was an easy salad to throw together when we were ready to eat. I made this for a luncheon and this salad was the favorite of everyone. Read More

STOP reading reviews and make this dressing! Loved this! I made the dressing as directed but used 2 tsp boars head deli mustard and 1tsp Dijon in place of mustard called for (not in addition) I also added a few shakes of curry powder and added extra chopped onion but used Maui sweet onion for my family's taste. Dressed salad of romaine hearts chopped tomato and basil with croutons and bacon bits (premade hormel). I literally made an all recipes account to rate this after reading recipes on the site for 5 years this is that good! Read More

Just made the dressing so far- it's awesome! I used an immersion blender and so it's smooth and delicious! I used about half as much olive oil as it asked for. Read More
