    Great salad dressing from the Fresh Start Cookbook. This dressing is a favorite around our house. Easy to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand.

      Very good, but I found it a little too sweet and lacking herbs. I added 2 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp each of dried basil, oregano and parsley. My balsamic of choice was likely the culprit for the sweetness, but these changes made it perfect, IMO.

      Delish and so... very low fat. I used a few drops of stevia for sweetener. The dijon and garlic really make this dressing stand up and shout, yummmy

      Really lovely dressing, I added a little extra pepper as I like the peppery taste in my dressings :)
