"This is a recipe I created when I realized that our bottled salad dressing was frozen and couldn't thaw quickly enough. It is very easy to make from ingredients usually already on hand. You can vary the amounts, or even substitute low-fat ingredients according to your personal taste. Tastes even better when chilled over night!" — BRIAMF

I really can't understand negative reviews on this recipe unless the directions were not followed. I found this to be an excellent recipe, and served it to two persons who are both excellent cooks. They loved it. This is the kind of recipe I come to allrecipes.com to find.
this is a great, imperceptible salad dressing, especially for salads that don’t need much spicing up, but i would suggest using buttermilk instead of normal milk and adding some pepper. i would also replace the garlic salt with just normal garlic, or just use less garlic salt because of the dominant salty taste the garlic salt has. Instead of using water to make the dressing thinner, I would suggest just adding olive oil or more buttermilk to prevent the dressing having a bland taste. I also think putting the dressing in the fridge for 8 hours is not obligatory, though it probably tastes better if you do so. Tarragon would also go great with this salad dressing.
We loved it. I didn't have lemons so I used apple cidar vinegar. Also used half & half instead of milk. I will make this again.
Too salty! Had to throw first batch out. Parm cheese is salty enough...do not add salt products. Add garlic powder or a clove of fresh instead of garlic salt.
I actually think this is one of the best salad dressings I have had in a long time and we ate it right away I did not let it set. I also added parsley and pepper and I put a lot less lemon in. I also added a dollop of sour cream. Anyway it was yummy! I will try this again and set it overnight not that this needs any improving at all!
I thought this was delicious. Right after I made it,it tasted just like creamy italian. After refrigerating for 12 hours it had a wonderfully unusual flavor...the lemon flavor came out alot more. My salad loving 21 month old daughter loved it too. It's hard to find good creamy salad dressings that don't have MSG...this one's a keeper.
Absolutely FANTASTIC !!!! Didn't have any lemons but had limes instead...was GREAT !!!!!!
I WAS REALLY LOOKING FOWARD TO THIS BECAUSE OF ALL THE GOOD REVIEWS..I ONLY ATE A FEW BITES OF MY SALAD...I WILL NEVER MAKE THIS AGAIN..WOULD MUCH RATHER HAVE BOTTLED DRESSING.
