I made this today, I did add some italian seasoning to the dressing and used honey instead of sugar.

I made this dressing to put over some broccoli slaw. I threw them together and let it soak overnight. I found the balsamic vinegar in this recipe to be overpowering so I tried adding garlic. This didn't help; the only thing that did was adding more oil/rice vinegar. I would not make this recipe again.

Light, Tasty, Easy vinaigrette dressing! I added a half cup of lemon juice, the same as the balsamic and rice vinegar. Very Happy! Thank you for sharing

Easy and tasty, this salad dressing complements the veggies without overpowering them. I followed the recipe exactly, cutting everything in half for fewer servings. Thanks for the recipe!

Ran out of dressing with guests on the way :eek: and threw this together, worked great! Used a bit of Stevia instead of sugar. Put it in a store bought almost empty bottle, and everyone thought it was store bought!!!! Yikes :)
