Feb. 27, 2009 Phenomenal!!!!!!! 50 stars!!!!! This is a wonderful dijon vinaigrette!!! The flavors are spot on!!! Dijon makes a great emulsifier so this got really thick and rich! I used a hand-held mixer with whisk attachment to achieve a really thick, creamy consistency. I used this dressing for Fresh Tomato-Basil-Asparagus Pasta Salad as that recipe called for bottled lemon vinaigrette and I always try to go for fresh instead. I will definitely make this dressing again and again!!!! Thank you so much for this great recipe!!! UPDATE: I already made this again, it is so good on salad or to dip veggies into, just wonderful!!!!!

This is a very nice, light and very refreshing vinaigrette. It is rather tart though. I added another tsp of sugar and it was perfect. Will really enjoy this this summer with fresh vegetables. Thanks :)

You are quite right BecR...this is a very refreshing vinaigrette. The addition of the sugar rounds the flavours out nicely. As Chef Lee mentioned, the flavours are perfect. Thank you for posting!

Made this to recipe except deleted mustard due to personal preference. Would also cut sugar back a little as it was a little sweet. Used this to top a salad of Romaine lettuce, chopped celery, sliced carrots and a jar of drained citrus salad. Delicious and one I will definitely make again. Thanks so much for posting.

This was far too acidic and just plain tart lemony...I like my salad dressings to complement whatever I pour them over, not mask their flavors. This one too quite a bit of work to get it to be more well rounded. I added a bit of orange juice and some honey as well as a few small shakes of other herbs I had in the cupboard. Not sure if I'll try it again.
