Yummy & Easy to Make This is a great salad dressing. I accidentally added too much mustard so I compensated by adding in more oil & vinegar. I also did not measure the cheese. All in all I used the same basic recipe and it game out wonderfully. I put it over fresh field greens (spring mix) and added red onion tomato wedges sliced kalamata olives & hearts of palm. Everyone went back for seconds & dinner wasn't even served yet! I will definitely make this again. Pros: Delicious Easy No need to buy special ingredients Read More

This is amazing! Not sure what 1/2 tsp of garlic is but we use 2 mid-large cloves. We also make it in large batches. Add a 1/2-1 tsp of anchovy paste for a Ceasar like dressing. Read More

Delicious! This dressing is the perfect level of creaminess without using mayo (which I do not like). I did not read the reviews before I made it but I would agree that you could cut down on the amount of cheese to cut down on fat/cals. Instead of raw garlic I used the pre-minced roasted garlic which was a perfect compliment to the other ingredients. I ended up adding some water and blending to thin it out and make it a bit more smooth. Overall wonderful natural recipe! Pros: Super tasty Easy to make Cons: Too thick Read More

This was seriously one of the best dressings I've ever had. I tossed it with a spring salad mix topped with grape tomatoes and red onion. I served the salad alongside the Eating Well Sausage Mushroom & Spinach lasagna ( Dinner was excellent that night. Read More

Awesome This is great! It's very easy to adjust the ingredients to suit your taste. I like more mustard and I use less oil and cheese to keep the calories down. With 1/4 cheese 2 tbs oil and more vinegar the per serving calories (including greens) come out to about 100 calories instead of 150. If you're trying to stick to a 500 calorie dinner this can make a big difference. If you're not a salad lover this dressing might change your opinion. Pros: Easy flavorful adaptable Read More
