Simple and perfect, basic vinaigrette with the correct ratio, in my opinion, of oil to vinegar - about three parts oil to one part vinegar. Many vinaigrettes call for way too much vinegar which tends to overshadow, rather than lightly dress, the greens. This is also good using balsamic vinegar, or using a combination of vinegar and lemon juice. Nice dressing! Read More

As written we didn't like this much and we're not very picky about salad dressings. I had to add a good bit of honey to it before we could tolerate it; it was just too sour before! I wanted to like it; sorry:( Read More

Nice dressing. Proportionally I added about 1/4 t white pepper and 1/2 t or less sea salt. I also cut the dijon down just a bit. Read More

This is an excellent recipe as written. I'm a spice freak so the second time around I added 2 tsp minced onion flakes 2 tsp celery salt and used Jack Daniel's Horseradish mustard (as that was what I had on hand). As the writer indicated you can adjust garlic salt and pepper to taste. I added part white pepper and part black pepper & minced garlic (adjusting accordingly. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing this recipe Monica!!! Read More

Very easy to put together with just a few ingredients. It was a little tangy but tasted even better the next day. Will make again. Read More

Great garlicky flavor! The only thing I modified was the oil content...I used 2/3c. I have used this on a great salad with beets lentils and feta as well as blanched green beans and tomatoes...very tasty! Read More

Pretty good; I guess I'm just not a huge fan of Dijon mustard. I like the vinegar:olive oil ratio--I was taught to use three oil to one vinegar while growing up. Read More
