    I missed French dressing from when I was a child but the bottle stuff as an adult is not very good.... This recipe is a perfect blend of sweetness salty savory tangy... A definite keeper and didn't need to change a thing  -  23 Sep 2014


    This is one of the best French dressings I've tried. Very thick and tangy. I would cut down on the oil just slightly. I tried a few variations: for the vinegar I used half rice vinegar and half balsamic. I also used brown sugar for more flavor and a thicker texture. No liquid smoke? Try a splash of worstershire.  -  09 Sep 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is better than any french dressing that I have ever tasted. It was so good that we served it on a salad after only being chilled for about 15 minutes. I had not fresh chives so I used dry chives. It worked great. The pepper sauce gave it a "gently" spiced flavor, somewhat tangy!  -  20 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
