I was so happy to find this one Dancer! I'm Somersizing, and it's been a real challenge to find store bought salad dressing, since most of them contain sugar or added carbs. This is so smooth and creamy it's almost sinful! The garlic and Dijon mustard really come through! Thanks for posting this!

I love the flavor and consistency of this dressing. The garlic is prominent but, thanks to boiling, is flavor-packed but not sharp. I'm sure I'll use this many times.
