This dressing was good and easy, ( followed it as written) but a little too sweet and thick for me,(maybe I blended it too long?) If I make it again, I would add less sugar, and more water. I did add a little more vinegar to it, after tasting it, but still thought it too sweet,and was leary of adding any more vinegar. Anyway, it's worth tinkering with.

Made this for my husband because we ran out of salad dressing and I had all the ingredients for this on hand. Added in a squeeze of honey and a 1/2 tsp of paprika because it was listed on the ingredients of our favorite French dressing. Turned out great and makes a lot of dressing. Won't have to buy bottled anymore. Thanks!

This is an exact duplicate of the bottled "orange stuff" that my husband really likes. I might have to do a little tinkering to make it a bit healthier, but this cuts out at least half of the chemicals in the bottled stuff so for now I'm happy. I had to whisk by hand since my blender died, and it worked fine (but might have been a tad harder).

I cut this recipe in half since I just needed it for another recipe, (Slow Cooker/Crock Pot Cranberry Pork Loin Roast). After reading some of the reviews I only used a bit less than 1/8c of sugar (remember I halved the recipe so for the whole amount it would be just under 1/4c) Also, I did not have the correct oil so I used olive oil, as that is all I have. Very good though, tangy. Thanks for saving me a trip to the store !!!

Good! I needed some French dressing for a recipe so made a half batch. Quick and easy and made from ingredients on hand. The best part, no creepy chemical ingredients. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

My dad will only eat French Dressing with his salad. I don't eat it. I prefer either Italian or Ranch. So when I was serving salad for Sunday dinner, needless to say - I forgot the French Dressing! I whipped this up and he absolutely loved it. I didn't have white vinegar but used apple cider vinegar instead. Will definitely keep this for future use!

Hi,
I was looking for an easy recipe with ingredients I would have in the pantry and I found this amazing recipe for french dressing. I absolutely love it! although I didnt have garlic salt and substituted garlic powder. It is the best dressing ever.

I couldn't get into my recipes to get my French Dressing recipe, but I'm kind of glad I couldn't. This was really good and a lot easier than my recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Very good! I subbed red wine vinegar instead of the regular and cut back the sugar since I think red wine vinegar is sweet. I cut the batch back so I didn't have leftovers of this. I'm going to be making this often since we don't use up bottled dressings fast enough. Thanks for giving us this recipe!
