This dressing is very good - sweet and tangy! Don't test taste, though, because it DOES get better as it's chilled. Next time, I might use less sugar, or even Equal to lighten it up. I also had to use 2 tsp prepared mustard instead of mustard powder. Yum!

I thought this dressing was okay. I used it on a pasta salad I took to work. However the women I worked with gave it rave reviews. I ended up adding a little dried dill because I didn't think it had enough flavor. I split the difference and gave it three stars.

Great, simple recipe. I used it in the Mexican Cornbread Salad recipe by Jose on this site. It was just right in the salad. I did use half the oil and increased the sour cream (reduced fat) to thicken it up a bit.

This dressing was very good with fresh spinach. Just be sure and mix thoroughly, and I would recommend using sparingly. A little goes a long way because it's quite oily.

I had an abundance of sour cream so typed in "sour cream salad dressing" and found this recipe. Was a little put off by the sugar but since I had all of the ingredients-set about recalculating for 4 servings. I found a great way to eliminate the sugar-use RICE VINEGAR! Also, I had Dijon mustard on hard-use it if you have it! The result was a beautifully creamy-and sufficiently sweet for my taste-dressing. I used it on a pasta vegetable salad and added it to My Recipe Box for future use. I wanted to share the sugar substitute idea for those of you who might be put off by the white sugar ingredient. Oh, I taste-tested too, which is why I knew immediately that this recipe is a keeper.

Excellent dressing! I added it to the salad before serving and to my surprise, everyone loved it!

this is really good and have been making this for years. when I make cuke salad I replace dill for the parsley. This also makes a really good slaw. I would cut the sugar some.
