This gives you a really bold burst of flavor. Really flavorful and pungent. Made with Splenda, and there was no sacrifice to the taste. Going into my Favorites folder. Thanks for sharing.

My family loves garlic so I thought this would be a great recipe to try!! But it was way too vinegar-y and sour! i will try this again but modify the ingredients and hopefully it will turn out

I wasn't planning on liking this; I don't adore Dijon. But, wow! This is really, really good. I never would have thought that red wine vinegar and mustard would go well together, but yum! My garlic cloves were really big, so I only used 2. Love it, thanks for sharing your recipe.

Wow - this is very good, but I have to admit as much as I love garlic, I did cut back on it a bit. This was very easy and delicious over mixed greens!

This dressing is so good. Not too sweet and not so tangy it makes your cheeks hurt. You can put this together in under 5 minutes. Very easy to adjust to your liking.

As is this would have been WAY too much garlic, and we love the stuff. I only used one good size clove and it was perfect. Everything else was spot on though! Thanks!

If you're not a garlic lover you may want to try this with a little less garlic rather than "move on". I'm more of a garlic liker so I used half the garlic and less oil and it was still quite good and quite garlicky.

Delicious! A must try for garlic lovers. Make sure everybody around you is eating it as well, haha. Thanks for sharing!
