    I had never made salad dressing before trying this recipe. It was really easy and turned out sooooo good! I will definately make this again.  -  31 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an excellent recipe. I made half the recipe because that's all I need. Like others, I felt the full measure of sugar might be too much for my taste, so cut that in half again. But instead of using sugar, I used 4 tablespoons of honey (with the rest of the ingredients halved). IT WAS WONDERFUL. I'll make this again and again. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.  -  13 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was looking for a creamy basil salad dressing recipe when I came across this recipe and decided to try it. First I cut the recipe in half and only used 1/2 of the sugar called for and onion salt instead of an onion. I put everything in my food processor and added the canola oil a little at a time. When it was completed I decided to add about twelve large basil leaves from our garden which had first been slivered. OUT STANDTING TASTE and I loved the light green color. I found my creamy basil recipe... so glad I found the original recipe.  -  15 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
