About this recipe: I serve this every time I have friends over because I love getting all the praise! They rave about it! People love the contrast of the snappy garlic and the sweet honey - I'm sure you will too.
Excellent - I've been searching for ever for a honey vinaigrette to match the one at my favorite restaurant; this one finally does it. The first time I made this the garlic taste was too sharp, so now I add some salt to the minced garlic and crush them together with the side of my knife on the cutting board to make more of a paste. This mellows the garlic a bit and gives the dressing a smoother consistency. I also mix the honey, apple cider vinegar and garlic together first, then add the oil while whisking constantly (I think this is called maing an 'emulsion') - this keeps the oil from separating from the other ingredients when the dressing sits. - 18 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My mom thought I was nuts when I started raving about this dressing. Then I made some to put on a tortellin and spinach salad (also from this site). She was in love. The dressing is super easy and I always have the ingredients on hand. You do have to let it sit for at least 45 minutes though, I shook it frequently during that time. It helps the honey to disolve. - 17 May 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this dressing! I love how simple it is to make and it contains ingredients that I always have on hand. You definately have to let it sit for a while before serving so the ingredients can come together and blend. - 13 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
