I had never made salad dressing before trying this recipe. It was really easy and turned out sooooo good! I will definately make this again.
The dressing is good. I think it's a keeper. I did as others suggested & halved the sugar. I also used 1 tsp onion powder instead of an onion (no reason other than laziness).
This is an excellent recipe. I made half the recipe because that's all I need. Like others, I felt the full measure of sugar might be too much for my taste, so cut that in half again. But instead of using sugar, I used 4 tablespoons of honey (with the rest of the ingredients halved). IT WAS WONDERFUL. I'll make this again and again. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
I was looking for a creamy basil salad dressing recipe when I came across this recipe and decided to try it. First I cut the recipe in half and only used 1/2 of the sugar called for and onion salt instead of an onion. I put everything in my food processor and added the canola oil a little at a time. When it was completed I decided to add about twelve large basil leaves from our garden which had first been slivered. OUT STANDTING TASTE and I loved the light green color. I found my creamy basil recipe... so glad I found the original recipe.
Fabulous dressing - light and creamy. I cut the servings down to 5 and put everything into a mini food processor in order to chop the onions down fine. I used 3 tbsp. of sugar and instead of dry mustard I used 2 tsp. of dijon.
I just tried out this recipe for a 4th of July Get-Together and it was well received. The dressing was super easy to make. I used onion powder rather than fresh onion, and the taste was still great! I still had dressing left this week and just used it to marinate boneless, skinless chicken breasts before I grilled them. My husband commented on how good they were; they were juicy and tender with a touch of sweetness. Just a bonus to find another use for this handy recipe!
This recipe is OUTSTANDING, EASY and FAST!! In fact, it's something I'd enjoy having in my frig at all times. I suggest finely chopping the onions, and in fact I put it all in my blender for about 3-4 seconds. (After all, nobody wants chunky salad dressing.) I served it with fresh spinach leaves and leafy red lettuce, then added sliced red onions and mandarin orange slices. Goodness, was it ever good! A real keeper for sure.
Hurray, Hurray for Shelly A. Just made this recipe in my food processor with 1/2 a medium to large sized onion. Mmmmm...... What a nice change. Can't wait to try on other salads besides greens. I'm going to share the extra portions if we don't hog down the whole recipe this week. Thanks again!! :')
