When I have time, I like to prepare this salad dressing the night before to really blend the flavors together. It's delicious with tomatoes and dark greens. -Tammie Lee Carter of Wheatfield, New York

"While this dressing is good, I also found it to be extremely sweet, plus I thought it had way too much celery seed, (it over powered the taste of the dressing), and it was slightly runny. But... my hubby and I thought it tasted a lot like Henri's Tas-tee Homestyle Dressing. I made this dressing for a 2nd time, modifying the ingredients, but I did not use a reduced fat mayonnaise. I used regular Hellmann's Mayonnaise, plus I only added 6 tablespoons of sugar, a 1/4 cup of white wine vinegar (instead of red wine vinegar), 1 tablespoon of diced onion, and I only added 1 teaspoon of celery seed, which I thought was more than enough. After I chilled the dressing for about 2-1/2 to 3 hours in the fridge, it thickened up nicely, and I thought it tasted much better with the modifications I made with the ingredients. Also, the dressing didn't make 14 servings, but rather about half of that."
