This is the best dressing ever. My mom got the recipe somewhere, and then adjusted it a bit, so she gets credit for it. Quick and delicious. The better quality the vinegars the better the dressing. I like to use a latte frother to mix the dressing. If you use the garlic make sure it is very fresh or it gets a little bitter in the dressing, it is optional. Enjoy!!

This dressing is off-the-chart yummy! I make all my own dressings and this will be my balsamic dressing forever more. I make a double batch, and would make a triple if I had a bottle big enough to put it in. We go through a double batch in about two weeks and it has always kept well in the cupboard. No need to refrigerate. Thanks to you and your mum for this fantastic recipe.

Wow! This is really good, restaurant quality dressing. The proportion of vinegar and oil is just right and I think the mustard adds a nice tang. I mixed it up in my magic bullet, which made it kind of creamy. Used it on a tomato salad with fresh basil and parmesan cheese. Thanks for posting!
