Very good! I made this just today because I had other stuff going into the oven, so why not? I used about 10 cloves of garlic and glad that I did. I made mine in the Cuisinart because when I tried to mash it with a fork I saw it would take too long. One change I will make in the future is to use less dijon mustard to let the other flavors shine through more. Thanks for posting, Jimijoe 43, with adjustments I'll surely use in the future!
Great flavor, but I think I should have used white balsamic vinegar? I used a very dark one and ended up with vinaigrette looking like chocolate sauce. I also would add more garlic. Made for Spring 2011 PAC game.
Wish I could give this dressing 10 stars!!!! Absolutely wonderful, and my garlic loving husband "demanded" that I make this all the time . I also just threw the garlic in the blender and it worked out perfectly. Thanks, Jimijoe, for this excellent dressing.
Thanks, Jimijoe! This is my new favorite dressing. I just LOVE your recipe. Yummy, yummy, yummy! Like another reviewer, I also had a hard time getting the garlic small enough by mashing it so now I just throw everything into the blender and it all comes out blended perfectly. I add 1/4 tsp. onion powder, 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning and I use a blend of half olive oil and half water to cut down the calories. You can't even notice the water in there- it's delicious.
Very good dressing, I used honey dijon mustard as I was out of the regular (shame on me) and cut the olive oil to 1/2 cup. I can see using this as a marinade for steaks as well.
Great vinaigrette. Made to use in Italian Chopped Salad in Shells. Have lots left so will be using on salads this week.
A nice change from the normal vinaigrette. I had trouble getting the garlic as fine as I would have liked but otherwise a great basic dressing. Thanks for sharing!
