This is awesome. I added a little more balsamic vinegar as I like my dressings tart. If you're watching your fat intake, this tastes good even with only 1 Tbsp olive oil. Fantastic dressing for salads, chicken and fish. Also good as a soup if you add some buttermilk/veggie stock. Tasty stuff!

Thanks Miller, I just got around to making this over the summer and I loved it! I used it as a marinade for chicken, and I also used it on salad. It was great! Thanks so much!
