We've eaten this often and find it a great healthy alternative to other French Dressings with a lot of sugar. I substitute Truvia for the sugar. Read More

Very tasty with a few tweaks This is a pretty good recipe. I doubled all the ingredients except for the thyme and used garlic powder instead of garlic.
