My husband can't eat greasy or spicy foods, and non of us like mayonnaise, so I created this creamy dressing we all enjoy. It gets its pleasant flavor from fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. —Nancy Johnston of San Dimas, California

"This dressing is very thin. After mixing it, I tasted it and found it to be quite bland. I ended up adding more ingredients to bring out flavor. I will not make it again."

"Excellent dressing, love basil and garlic. This is better than any salad dressing that can be purchased in a store. Stores very well in the fridge. This one's a keeper, will definitely be making again."

"The flavors of this dressing are better after sitting in the fridge 1-2 days. If used the first day, it's too mild, in my opinion. Will definitely make again, as it was easy and I like homemade dressings so much better than store-bought."
