Not very appealing to the eye. Tasted much to strong of the balsamic vinegar as the recipe is. I will not make it again.

First time making dipping oil, yummy!! The only modification I made is that I used Tarragon vinegar instead of balsamic, I was out.

We really liked this with dinner the other night with The Dom's Antipasto Salad (With Pasta). A great warm weather dinner that doesn't require much cooking at all. Next time I will probably cut down on the balsamic a bit, it was alittle too much for our tastes.

This is perfect! Just what I have been looking for.

We like to have our own individual dish of dip to ourselves, not a communal bowl.

This was pretty good! It makes a large amount however, so I would probably half the recipe next time. Also, I felt that I could have cut down on the oil to bring out the vinegar flavor more....so just under a cup? Definitely a recipe that could be tweaked according to taste!

This was very good, the ingredient amounts were just right to make a nice bread dip with an Italian meal. We usually have garlic bread, so this was a welcome change of pace.

Wonderfull recipe! Made this twice first time followed directions. The second time I reduced the vinegar (the first time I thought it was a bit overpowering. But DH loves balsamic vinegar so he didn't mind) I also left out the parmesan cheese. ( I think it needs the cheese) So next time I make this I will reduce the cheese a little. Thanks for the recipe.
