      When I first read the recipe I completely overlooked how much sugar was involved. But like other reviewers, I scaled that quite a ways back and still found it to be a pleasantly sweet balsamic dressing. One thing I didn't like was how runny it was, and while taste wise I loved it and would definitely make again, I'd scale the hot water back and dissolve the sugar in as little hot water as possible. This has kept very well for the whole week and goes perfectly with hearty salad greens like romaine & spinach. Thanks!

      I accidentally used extra virgin olive oil, which turned out wonderful. I tried the Mrs. Dash trick someone else suggested. I liked it. I used 1 tsp. "Garlic Herb" and 1 tsp. "Table Blend." I also cut the sugar to 1/4 c. "sugar in the raw" and it was plenty sweet. I think honey or agave would be a great substitute. I will definitely try the pepper, paprika and salt next time. This was a family pleaser! I will not be buying dressing at the store any time soon! Thanks!

      I really enjoyed this, I also cut the sugar in half and it was perfect. Made ahead of time in the blender and let it sit overnight for ingredients to marinate, was perfect! Thanks
