    This is the first salad dressing I tried to make myself. Incredibly good! One of the best dressings I’ve ever put in my mouth. Can’t recommend this recipe highly enough!

    Again I love to make my salad dressing at home. This one is not as simple as the vinaigrette as I usually make but well worth the effort. It was so good! I will be making this one for my company that come instead of buying the bottled stuff at the store.
