Not sure why I didn't have a great tasting dressing after reading all the reviews, but this lacked flavor. Made just as written and I have had vinaigrettes that have tasted better and are way less in calories. Sorry, but this recipe needs some work.

Perfect! I did leave out the scallions and parsley, but it did not suffer for that! My dijon was honey dijon, which lent a slight sweetness. I cut back the salt to 1/4 tsp, which was perfect for us! Served with Beet Salad With Goat Cheese and Walnuts, which was a lovely pairing. Thanks for the excellent and so simple recipe!

oh yum! Whipped this up to go on home-smoked turkey, roasted red pepper, onion, provolone, black olive & romaine lettuce salad - it was FAB! Thankyou - we'll be keeping this!

Just wanted to comment that this dressing was OUTSTANDING!!! I, too, added an extra clove of garlic and used canola oil instead of olive oil. I'm on a low sodium diet and replaced the salt with a salt substitute and it was still very, very good! The longer this dressing sits, the better it gets! I will DEFINITELY be making this again. Only next time, I'll double or even triple the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing this! I'm done with the bottled stuff! **UPDATE** I made this again. Only this time, I left out the oil. I replaced it with about a tablespoon of water. I had to scale back the vinegar and add a little more dijon mustard (I used Hellman's Dijonnaise)and TADA!!! I've got the tastiest fat free salad dressing that I've ever had. Homegirl, I cannot thank you enough for this recipe! You are truly a diet saver!

I wanted to make a salad with black-eyed peas and a bunch of veggies I had in the fridge. I found this dressing complemented the various ingredients very nicely. I followed the recipe except for using white wine vinegar and omitting the parsley because I was out. Will use this again and again. Thank you for the recipe.

I added some dried basil to the mix. I used olive oil, but next time will use half canola and half olive, since my brand of oil overpowered the flavor.I recommend doubling the amounts, if you want enough for next day. Roxygirl

This is excellent. I made it ahead of time and let it marinade for about 3 hours and it tasted great on our salad tonight. Great combination of flavors with just the right tart/sweet combination that makes for a great Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing. Thanks for posting.

We had this salad on Homegirl's Chopped Salad Chopped Salad . I think the dressing was perfect with this. I made exactly as per recipe, except I doubled everything so we would have some more for the next day. We eat a lot of salad. Thanks for posting.
