    This is very good. I made it olive oil and dried basil. Mine has a pronounced garlic taste (a good thing) but I may have used a little more garlic than called for (garlic cloves will vary in size). I made this a day ahead to let the flavors marry. <br/><br/>This is a keeper and I'll make it again.<br/><br/>There are a number of reviewers who said this was sweet. Taking a cue from them, I dissolved 2 teaspoons of sugar in the vinegar and then tasted it. Then I added another 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. That was perfect for my taste and the vinegar I used. I suggest this method instead of guessing and just putting the sugar in with the rest of the ingredients and hoping for the best. The sugar belongs in the vinegar in the first place to take the edge off it. And the amount of sugar required really depends on the acidity of the vinegar being used. That way you will always get it right and won't waste good ingredients.

    This was much too sweet and I only used 1/2 of the sugar called for, it wasnt even worth eating. Luckily I have so much basil in the garden right now I could afford to throw it out.

    This is fantastic! I used olive oil and a little less than 1 tablesppon of splenda for baking. I like to use that splenda in dressings because it dissolves so easily. I mixed five different kinds of basil from my garden. I'll use this dressing for our salads until it's gone then make more! Thanks Lorac!
