Excellent - I've been searching for ever for a honey vinaigrette to match the one at my favorite restaurant; this one finally does it. The first time I made this the garlic taste was too sharp, so now I add some salt to the minced garlic and crush them together with the side of my knife on the cutting board to make more of a paste. This mellows the garlic a bit and gives the dressing a smoother consistency. I also mix the honey, apple cider vinegar and garlic together first, then add the oil while whisking constantly (I think this is called maing an 'emulsion') - this keeps the oil from separating from the other ingredients when the dressing sits.

I found this vinaigrette to be very bland even with 2 garlic cloves. I would not make again.

My mom thought I was nuts when I started raving about this dressing. Then I made some to put on a tortellin and spinach salad (also from this site). She was in love. The dressing is super easy and I always have the ingredients on hand. You do have to let it sit for at least 45 minutes though, I shook it frequently during that time. It helps the honey to disolve.

I love this dressing! I love how simple it is to make and it contains ingredients that I always have on hand. You definately have to let it sit for a while before serving so the ingredients can come together and blend.

Excellent!!! I added a little extra apple cider vinegar (1/2 cup instead of 1/3 cup). My husband loved it too. I will definitely use this recipe over and over. Thanks Dawn!

Awesome! We used it on a baby spinach salad with sliced mushrooms, almonds, sliced strawberries, and sweet onions.

A favorite dressing but I add a small spoon of Dijon & tiny bit of salt & pepper. I make this most every week in mini processor to make creamy. Process all then drizzle in the oil. Pour into old cruet & makes me happy. Good on salads with chicken or with fruit. Also a good dipping sauce. Make the day before.

This dressing is yummy. I didn't feel like measuring out the ingredients, so I just guessed, but it's super hard to mess it up! Just depends on your taste. I just used an old salsa jar that I had washed out to shake it up. Very easy...thanks!
