This dressing was very good. I added more of the balsamic vinager and less oil, since I prefer a more vinager taste than oil, and added a little more of the spices than called for, but I was quite happy with the results.

Pretty good, but a bit oily.

This is a very easy and tasty dressing, I use it over fresh spinach. Add a little extra garlic and a very small amount of brown sugar and it's perfect.

MOVE OVER PAUL NEUMAN! THIS ONE'S GOT YOU BEAT! It is so easy & tastes GREAT! If you like the taste of balsamic vinegar & I do, give this recipe a try.

Very good, although I think I'll use less olive oil next time. It was a little too oily for my tastes. I didn't have fresh herbs so I used dried and it came out fine. I also added some garlic to it! Yummy!

I use this all the time for my salad dressing. Our favourite is .. Sliced tomato topped with finely chopped red (salad) onion with the balsamic dressing sprinkled on top refrigerate for 30min and serve. Its so simple but tastes devine.

Quick and easy. I made this on different occassions with fresh herbs and then dried. Both were very good. I would suggest an mild olive oil though.
