Herb Dressing

Recipe by  

"This dressing also tastes wonderful on cold pasta. It actually is best to use dried basil in this recipe, because fresh basil will turn a funny color."

Very tasty! I'll make it again but with a touch less vinegar as it had a little too much for my taste.

This was okay, but I ended up doing so much additional adding I think it ends up being a new recipe. I didn't have white wine vinegar so used red wine vinegar. I followed the directions exactly and it was way too sour, so I added another tablespoon of sugar. I think didn't think it had enough taste so I added a couple of cloves of garlic and some red pepper flakes for kick. It ended up okay like I said, but was still just missing something. Plus the basil taste was a little strong for me.

This dressing was much too sour for my taste. It was quick and easy to make though.

My wife and I really enjoy this dressing. It has a lot of ingredients, but they all go together really well.

Nice dressing, but for my tastes, I think olive oil instead of vegetable oil and some chopped garlic would have improved it. It had just the right amount of vinegar/pungency for me.

Delicious! I used regular white vinegar, olive oil, and mustard seed instead (because that's what I had). Will make again!
