"I made a salad for a potluck lunch. Instead of buying all different dressings I decided to make just one. I found this one and had all of the ingredients. It was quick to make and everyone loved it. There weren't any complaints about it being the only dressing option."

"This dressing was delicious and simple to make. I was hesitant to try it because other Italian salad dressings I've tried in the past weren't very good. This dressing had excellent flavor."

"I was making pasta salad and had run out of dressing. I made this up with the ingredients on hand and my family found it to be wonderful!"
