Creamy Tarragon Salad Dressing Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Seems that I forgot to mention the xanthan gum. This is meant to be a low calorie dressing made creamy by the xanthan gum. I emailed customer service and they made sure the recipe got corrected. By all means, leave out the gum and water if you'd like to make a regular vinaigrette dressing.

This dressing was the perfect complement to a salad of mixed spring greens & endive, chopped beets and feta cheese. Perfect balance of sweet, salty and bitter. Thanks, Falvor King!

The celery seed was an interesting addition, but it was good.

I think this recipe is fantastic with one big alteration - add NO water. It tastes great without it and it becomes way too watery with the water. This is one of my staple dressings.

This was really good. I only used 1/4 cup of water and it came out perfect.

Tastes good, but by no means is it creamy. Actually it's very watery. With 1/3 cup vinegar, 3/4 cup water and only 1/3 cup vegetable oil, can't imagine it can become creamy.

This tasted good but it's very far from being thick and creamy......watery is more like it. That said, I would probably make this again, but only when I'm dieting because it's only 57 calories per 1/8 cup serving, which is a very decent amount of dressing. I'd love to give this more stars for taste, but I'm only giving it two because as written it's deceptive. UPDATE: I tried this again using a bit of xantham gum as a thickener (which I got in bulk at Winco) and that did the trick. Fix the recipe and I'll give it more stars.
