This is my favorite homemade dressing recipe. I make it every year for the holidays and always get lots of compliments. It has a very fresh flavor from all the vegetables and herbs.

Great stuffing recipe, I made this for a crowd (my family pre-Christmas crowd of about 25 people) and it turned out good and was very popular. Thanks for the post, Chris!

This is really great! I cut the recipe in half since it was only my husband and me eating. It worked wonderfully. Just the right amount of spices and moisture. I can now throw away about 10 other stuffing recipes I have!!! Thanks, Chris
