This dressing exceeded my expectations! (And I've tried several of Marie's recipes, so they were pretty high to begin with. :)) I made it on Thursday, following the recipe exactly, to serve the next night. As several have mentioned, it definitely tasted too salty even though I'd used the kosher type. But I stuck it in the fridge thinking I'd give the flavors time to meld a little before adjusting. By Friday, it had completely mellowed out and was perfectly seasoned -- no tweaking necessary! If you plan to use it within a few hours, I'd recommend that you cut the salt approximately in half. But if made a day in advance, we thought it was pretty close to perfect as is. I served it over a salad with several different kinds of greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and pepperoncini. Thanks for a fabulous start to our Italian dinner, Marie!

very tasty - a bit tart but once I added a bit more oil, it was great! Thanks so much!
