Sick and tired of trying bottle after bottle of dressing, and not finding anything that came even close to my favorite restaurant-inspired salad, this recipe allows me to have simple, delicious salad anytime, with only a few simple ingredients. Tastes amazing on salad with fruit (apples are my favorite), or even as a bread dip!

Wow what a great and versatile recipe this is. The other reviews noted that they may try honey in place of sugar and olive oil. I did both these tweaks and it was great. Now just remember if you smell from the jar there is a strong vinegar smell but do not worry the blend works great and I did not find it over powering at all. Read More

This was very good but I changed it up a little bit. I used a pint of fresh raspberries and added about 3 or 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar to it. Mashed it with a fork and let it sit for about 15 minuted. Then I strained it to get all the seeds out and added the rest of the ingredients. Read More

I followed the recipe with two variations: I used honey instead of brown sugar and avocado oil instead of vegetable oil. I believe olive oil would make a nice contribution to the flavors and shade some of the brightness of this tangy-sweet dressing and I may do that next time. I served the dressing over fresh spinach and fruit and it was a nice accompaniment to our salad. Read More

I did make one change: I used lemon olive oil in place of the vegetable oil. Otherwise I followed directions. Yummy stuff! Do not try this if you are iffy about balsamic vinegar! I loved this and know that I have other family members (not hubby however) who'll love this! Thanks WeatherMaven! Read More

This was delicious. Very tangy and fruity and slightly sweet without really being sweet. I only made enough for 1 salad but wish now that I had extra for another meal. I used 1/2 regular dijon mustard and 1/2 honey to make my own honey dijon and garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. This was sooo Yummilicious! Read More
