Take out one Tablespoon of milk and add the same amount of red wine Vinegar and you have a really tasty winner. OR add lots of garlic powder...or add a couple BIG shakes of paprika. Good basic or Base for lots of jumps for any flavors you like. Add pepper and Bacon bits and you have a great bacon dressing.

i really didn't think this was spectacular. tasted too mayonnaise-y. although if you like that kind of thing, then hey. go ahead.

Red wine vinegar, a pinch of sugar, lots of garlic and freshly ground pepper makes this dressing a real winner.

I added some garlic powder and the end result was yummy. This was one of the best dressings I have ever had. I love that I will always have the ingredients on hand. No more bottled garlic dressing for me. Thanks 1,0000 for posting this great dressing!

Used light real mayo, 1tsp red wine vinegar, minced garlic, salt and pepper and a lot more skim milk. This is good and very thick as written. The added ingredients really put this one over the top. This would also be great as a turkey or ham sandwich spread. My hubby is going to try it on his french fries.

This recipe as mentioned in the review before was very mayonnaisey...but I think by using this as the basic ingredient to any salad dressing you can create any salad dressing according to your taste...what I did was add in some dried or fresh herbs like basil,oregano or mixed herbs....each herb gives a different kick to the dressing.So...experiment!!

Absolutely easy! I added 1 more tsp milk and a 1/2 tsp garlic powder. YUM! Thank you!!

I added garlic and a little oregano to the dressing and used it on a chicken pasta salad. It was great! Very mild but still flavorful. Thanks!
