    salad dressing servings are typically 2 TBL at around 80 calories for a light one. The servings for this are 1 tsp. That puts it more realistically at 108 calories a serving. More than others with more flavor - 2/4/10

    I made this recipe and LOVE it. It was a bit sour for us - so added some Splenda [hubby a diabetic] and put half the salt in. LOVE that olive oil, garlic and lemon flavour. Our company enjoyed this dressing as well. - 2/4/10

  • For a stand alone salad dressing this was WAY TOO MUCH lemon for me. I only had enough fresh lemon to squeeze 3/4 cup, and even after doubling the olive oil and adding sugar this was still quite sour. Ended up adding oregano and soy sauce for more depth and it turned out alright. - 6/30/14
