"We actually liked this dressing--I agree that the garlic taste I was hoping for was lacking just a bit but overall it was very good. Just add more garlic."

"I didn't care for this dressing. I'm only leaving a review so I'll know not to make it again."

"I made this..and I don't think just mincing garlic to put in a dressing will give it that garlic taste unless you roasted the garlic or something and the vinegar taste was more strong than the other flavors in the dressing."
