Having a dinner party tonight and made this for my guests. I thought it needed just a tad more sweet but other than that I love it. Since two of my guests are juvenile diabetics I added one packet of Sweet N Low. Thanks for the post! ***Update*** My dinner guests LOVED this and asked for the recipe! Make sure you give this recipe time for the flavors to meld. Read More

I used olive oil as suggested by a few people and I didn't think it went well. Next time I will use veg oil and give this recipe a fair rating it probably deserves. Read More

We loved it! I used 1/2 balsamic and 1/2 white vin. and 1/2 & 1/2 olive oil/ veg. oil. I think Balsamic gives it more flavor. I also added more hot pepper sauce. We like zing in our food. Thanks for the delicious recipe. Tastes even better the next day after everything gets a chance to blend. Read More

Not only was this an excellent salad dressing, we marinated pork loin chops all day in this dressing before putting them on the grill, and they were fabulous! Read More

This is a great salad dressing and very easy. I usually add a couple extra cloves of garlic to the recipe. I also add extra kosher salt when I toss it. It tastes great for quite a few days for salad all week and if you don't use it all or you need a quick marinade it makes great grilled chicken. Very versatile! Read More

This is absolutely delicious. The only adjustment I made was to add about 1/2 tablespoon more of the mustard. Everyone I have served it to has liked it. It is especially good on mixed greens with some asparagus in the salad. Read More

Vinaigrette just like I like it -light not too acidic and NOT made with balsamic vinegar (don't care for it at all) not to mention an oil to vinegar ratio of 3:1. (Well I adjust it to that ratio) I used white wine vinegar olive oil and skipped the hot sauce. It's not difficult at all to eat a good tossed salad with a dressing like this. Read More

This took 5 minutes to make and it was delicious. I will never buy that awful store bought dressing again when it is so simple to make from scratch! Read More

Outstanding! I used a spicy pepper mustard instead of what the recipe called for and a few more shakes of the hot sauce and it turned out sweet and wonderful! Read More

This is delicious. I add three tablespoons of honey because I like a sweeter dressing. Read More
