    Used this recipe in the creamy chicken recipe. I think it should say 2 tsp salt.. heck it was salty!  -  02 Nov 2016


    Excellent recipe Used this to marinade courgettes for a "health grill" and then added fresh lemon juice and rind to marinade chicken breasts...worked very well !  -  27 Apr 2013


    This is a delicious and light-tasting Italian dressing! Per other reviewers, I eliminated the 2 tablespoons of salt and it was just right without it. I doubled this recipe to fill a 16 oz bottle. I used balsamic vinegar which makes this extra special. It seemed like the amount of oregano was excessive but really it is perfect once mixed and poured on the salad. This dressing mixes and tastes best when the ingredients are allowed to "marry" overnight in the refrigerator. Finally a wonderful salad dressing that tastes as good as any in an Italian restaurant - we loved it! Update - Since I doubled the recipe, I used 1 tablespoon garlic salt and one tablespoon garlic powder which really gives this dressing a smooth taste with less saltiness. After making this quite a few times, adding a bit more sugar will temper down the acidic taste. I've also been adventurous and added dried, minced onion bits. Yummy!  -  21 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
