"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."

"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'm new to making my own salad dressings, and this was delicious and SO easy. I question the 10 servings, though. We don't use a lot of dressing, so I halved it, and it just barely dressed two individual salad bowls. Will definitely make again!"

"I used this to marinate some vegetables that we did on the grill when I discovered I didn't have any store-bought Italian dressing. It worked great!"
