I didn't really like this dressing. It was very vinegary. The fennel was a wonderful touch though. Read More

Very good light and tangy. The fennel definitely gives it that extra zing. If you start out with a good quality balsamic vinegar you end up with a good dressing in the end..... Read More

My husband and I love balsamic dressing and this recipe really hit the spot. We loved the tangy zip to it! I can't quite put my finger on it but I feel it could use one extra ingredient and then it would be amazing. Read More

Excellent!! I am used to having freshly made balsamic dressing at a local restaurant and have never like the store bought. But recipe is the best! Sadly i didn't have any fennel seed.. so i substituted it for some maple syrup. It turned out wonderfully. Read More

I was making a fresh broccoli salad when I realized the recipe called for light balsamic dressing. I didn't realize the recipe didn't include the dressing so I scrambled onto allrecipes.com and found this one. Made it and I have to tell you.... it's awesome!!!! My 4 and 6 year olds couldn't get enough of the raw broccoli salad with this dressing on it. Thanks!!! Read More

Sorry...but I found this to be not to my liking! I went back over the recipe thinking I did something wrong but found nothing. I guess my tastes are different than all the people that like this. Read More
