"I added honey instead of the sugar and will probably add some more herbs next time. It was simple to make, and pretty good drizzled over pasta salad."

"Very good, I like the cheese in it. Also I used splenda and omitted the sugar. This is my new go to."

"Pretty good. I did use another reviewers suggestion, omitted the sugar and added Tb honey. Upon initial taste, I thought it could use some more of "something". Added some garlic salt and pepper and a tad of dry zesty italian mix - I think next time I would just add the pinch of garlic salt and pepper, yummy!"

"Italian dressings are my favorite and this one is very flavorful and easy. My husband prefers blue cheese dressings, but he OK'd this Italian one. I used it to marinate the chicken for the Grilled Chicken and Veggie Kabob recipe; the chicken was excellent."

"I have made this a few times now, the last time I made it I omitted the sugar for one TB honey. Wow what a difference. Great flavor."
