This is very good even if it did take me two attempts to make it. 1st try, disaster. Cooked the sugar/water to long, turned into rock, thought I had to throw out pan and spoon. 2nd attempted cooked only 3 min. didn't care if it got thick or not, dressing turned out deliciously delicious. Followed the recipe to a T using finely chopped onions. Keeper for sure.

This was SOOOOO simple and very tasty! It's the very best Russian salad dressing I've had and I will NOT be buying the store bought stuff anymore. Thanks so much! Used 1/2 of it to make apricot glazed chicken.

Excellent and tasty. Although the fat content numbers are a bit frightening, I think that this in fact yields significantly more than 4 servings - there are close to 2 cups of liquid in this recipe, and to consume half a cup of dressing with a salad is a bit excessive. I find for side-salads, one gets about 10 to 12 servings from this recipe, so the fat does not look so bad now. It also works well if the oil is reduced somewhat - removing about a third of the oil has little effect on the taste. I've made it several times and will definitely make it again.
