I don't remember the source for this recipe but I think it was a cowboy recipe book. Cooking time is the time to set aside to develop flavors. It is really great over a spinach salad w/ sliced mushrooms and crumbled bacon. My DH's favorite dressing for green salads w/ any combo of veggies that I have on hand-hope it becomes a favorite of yours. Enjoy!!!

Wow. This is my new favorite dressing. It's hard to believe how so few ingredients can result in such a pleasing flavor. I used balsamic vinegar and liked it so much I'll probably never try any other. Thanks so much for posting. I'm really surprised this doesn't have more 5-star ratings! It sure deserves them.

This was a very nice dressing! I had over a mixed green salad and enjoyed it alot! I liked using fresh herbs from the garden. Thanks! Made for Healthy Choices ABC tag in the game room.

This was for a last minute salad, using lettuce, dried cranberries, and tomato. I used cider vinegar, olive oil, and fresh cilantro for the parsley (risky move, but delicious with the tangy flavor of vinegar). I also used a "country Dijon." Despite serving this 5 min. upon making, this dressing had a wonderful flavor. I loved how it didn't taste grainy and the oil/vinegar didn't separate. I noticed my teenaged son ate his salad without complaint, too. Thanks Mrs. Jack, for posting. Roxygirl
