Good dressing, but I can't say it was outstanding. Needs garlic, oregano, etc. for a little more flavor or zip.

I thought this was going to taste better than I thought it would. Didn't have very much flavor and a full tablespoon of lemon juice made it too tangy or something. Maybe I didn't use the right kind of balsamic vinegar because it just didn't taste right.

Laura, thankyou, this is a great salad dressing! I did cut the sugar in 1/2, and added 1 crushed garlic clove. I didn't have lemon pepper so I followed another reviewer's advice and used lemon zest and black pepper. This reminded me of a wonderful dressing that my grandma used to make, thanks!

This is not only a fabulous dressing (even my kids said so) but a great marinade! Both for chicken and pork chops! I use less than half the oil though, otherwise it is perfect.

I tried this dressing a month ago, but I only had Garlic vinegar (rice vinegar) instead of balsmic vinegar. IT WAS EXCELLENT! I ate the whole bowl of salad and had to make my husband one for himself. Actually this dressing is the only one I will now eat on my salad and have been able to lose 7 lbs the last month, I JUST LOVE THE TASTE OF THIS DRESSING!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of my favorite dressings! I have made it several times. I like it best using 1/2 of the vinegar (1/4c) as 1/2 cup is too strong. I have also made it with a brown sugar substitute which was good.

I scaled this recipe down to 3 servings. Then I sauteed peppers, onions and zucchini and poured it over the vegetables. Great in wraps! Excellent dressing!

I liked this dressing - I halved it and then I added a bit more sugar to satisfy my sweet tooth. My husband felt the balsamic vinegar was a bit too pungent for his tastes - I plan on making it again with either regular vinegar or wine vinegar - and perhaps a bit less than the amount that the recipe called for.
