This quick and easy salad dressing is great on all kinds of salads. It’s sweet, tangy and oniony, and doesn’t separate. You can make it ahead of time and store in the fridge. —Julie Sterchi, Jackson, Missouri

"I think this is a great start. It was a little runny and needed more of a kick. I added several teaspoons of honey Dijon mustard, honey, and ground black pepper. But like I said, it's a good base just adjust to your tastes."
