    I made this recipe and served to my guests. We all loved it. The fennel gives it a wonderful flavor and a wonderful aroma as well.  -  24 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good, light and tangy. The fennel definitely gives it that extra zing. If you start out with a good quality balsamic vinegar you end up with a good dressing in the end.....  -  01 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband and I love balsamic dressing and this recipe really hit the spot. We loved the tangy zip to it! I can't quite put my finger on it, but I feel it could use one extra ingredient and then it would be amazing.  -  27 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
