Dijon Vinaigrette

Submitted by: VERA_MOM

This is our family's favorite salad dressing - we have it over both leafy and chopped salads! Delicious as a marinade too! Nutritional information is calculated for approximately eight 2-tablespoon servings - your personal preference may be to use less - the flavors are quite strong and a little goes a long way!

    My sister gave me a very similar recipe, being diabetic I substituted Splenda for the honey and made in the blender slowly adding oil for the last step. It was stupendous. In fact everyone wanted the splenda version over the regular. A real hit - 3/18/09

    I skip the basil and parmesan (makes it too salty for me) and use black pepper. Can also substitute a bit of sugar instead of honey if too sweet. Minced shallots can also be subbed for garlic for a more delicate flavor. - 3/27/07

    Really good! and I find that by doubling the lemon (or the vinegar) you can cut the oil in half. - 3/27/07

    I've been looking for a recipe like this. To make it to my liking, I would omit the honey, as the balsamic vinegar has it's own sweetness. - 2/23/09

  • LOVE this stuff! Actually got the recipe from a restaurant up North before I moved. But I use Romano cheese, no honey and do it in a blender- add oil VERY slowly this causes the dressing to thicken up quite a bit. Going to try adding maybe just a little honey, thanks for the tip... - 1/14/09
