"This is as good and simple recipe. I use red wine vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar just to change up the flavor a little. I never buy red onions because the white ones are better on my budget. It's also good with half spinach and half mixed greens."

"Great recipe I made it over ten times to date. My wife and five-year old can’t get enough. I have substituted olive oil for canola oil and sometimes I've use shallots instead of red onions. A great recipe."

"I use any store brand or Heinz. Most apple cider vinegars ar the same unless you are pickling-then check the acidity number.Idea"

"barbandchuck, I just use the store brand, most apple cider vinegar is very similar. I like Bragg's but a magazine taste test found Maille to be the #1 choice. It's also the most expensive. By the time you add the seasonings, it's pretty hard to tell the difference."
