    A good dressing and went well over spinach, but is not Italian dressing. It tasted more along the lines of French dressing, mainly I think because of the paprika. I liked the celery seed on the salad, but didn't think it really matched Italian dressing either. We couldn't taste the sesame seeds. I used less oil for our tastes. There is no time listed on the recipe (it took me about 8 minutes start to finish).

    I made this for a salad dressing with the vinegar and oil. I made it as written, but chose to leave out the sesame seeds as I don't normally use them in my salad dressing. I used the 1/4 cup cider vinegar and a little less then 2/3 cup oil and just skipped the water. This is very good, but our taste it needed a good deal of salt and pepper, which will be easy enough to add into the remaining mixture. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for I recommend Tag Game.
