Very good dressing. I enjoyed the flavor combo of the two herbs in this - very fresh and flavorful. I tried the updated version of this recipe, and the new oil amount worked out fine. I used egg substitute in place of real egg as I was serving to a child as well - this worked out just fine.

This was wonderful tasting although I had to underrate because we felt it only need 1 cup of oil. The recipe did not specify what type of oil, we used olive. I actually made it twice but the first time it just seemed that there was way too much oil. I used that batch as a marinade for some chicken (great) and redid the dressing with only 1 cup oil. We used fresh herbs from the garden and did add 2 cloves of garlic, minced. (Editor's Note: This recipe was updated due to this review)
