Simple and perfect, basic vinaigrette with the correct ratio, in my opinion, of oil to vinegar - about three parts oil to one part vinegar. Many vinaigrettes call for way too much vinegar which tends to overshadow, rather than lightly dress, the greens. This is also good using balsamic vinegar, or using a combination of vinegar and lemon juice. Nice dressing!

As written, we didn't like this much, and we're not very picky about salad dressings. I had to add a good bit of honey to it before we could tolerate it; it was just too sour before! I wanted to like it; sorry :(

Perfect! I cut the recipe in half and can't wait to experiment with honey mustard or balsamic vinegar. Very versatile recipe!

Nice dressing. Proportionally, I added about 1/4 t white pepper and 1/2 t or less sea salt. I also cut the dijon down just a bit.

this is really good... i used it on fresh garden lettuce...we really enjoyed it...i added more garlic (coz that is what we do with almost any recipe) and used white wine vinegar instead of red coz that is what i had...i halved the recipe but still have some left over so look forward to using it up...thanks for the recipe...

This is an excellent recipe, as written. I'm a spice freak, so the second time around, I added 2 tsp minced onion flakes, 2 tsp celery salt, and used Jack Daniel's Horseradish mustard (as that was what I had on hand). As the writer indicated, you can adjust garlic, salt and pepper to taste. I added part white pepper and part black pepper, & minced garlic (adjusting accordingly. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Monica!!!

Very easy to put together with just a few ingredients. It was a little tangy but tasted even better the next day. Will make again.

Great garlicky flavor! The only thing I modified was the oil content...I used 2/3c. I have used this on a great salad with beets, lentils and feta, as well as blanched green beans and tomatoes...very tasty!
