Thank you for a good, basic recipe. Make sure to use a good-quality olive oil as it features heavily in this dressing. In fact, I found it a bit overwhelming. I think if you cut back on the oil just slightly it would be perfect.

This truly is a good basic vinaigrette. I prepared it for use in Orzo Salad, and knowing the tastes of the guests that would be eating the salad added just a bit of honey to the dressing to cut some of the bite. It worked perfectly to create a great salad for an impromptu dinner.

Great recipe...did use just olive oil because I find it too strong so I put a more Crisco vegetable oil and a little olive oil. Great with Mean Chef's Texas Caviar from the Cowgirl Hall of Fame Restaurant. Thanks...
