"This is a great recipe! I blended all of the ingredients together before adding in the cornstarch and water mixture - but I don't even know that you need that mixture! It was actually pretty thick on it's own, next time I may leave that out. I also substituted a 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder instead of the chopped onion since that's all I had. The end result was good, but seemed like it was missing a little something. I ended up adding in a teaspoon of paprika and it was perfection! A great french dressing I can make at home, love it!"
