I'm nuts too...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS DRESSING!! I forgot to pick up the pectin, so that got exempted. I just blended the oil alone for about 45 seconds, and added the other ingredients (so that it wouldn't seperate). Don't let the corn syrup scare you, as I almost didn't try this because I thought that ingredient was odd. Thanks Barb!!


I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I have a suggestion for all those who's dressing came out watery. Try mixing all but the oil together, then slowly pour the oil in as the blender is running. I have made good season's Italian dressing in the blender this way for many years and have never had to shake the jar again, even after being refrigerated for a couple of days.


This is a beautiful recipe! Even my husband loved it and he's a devoted Ranch Dressing fan! I chose to use olive oil and took the advise of another review and blended the oil alone for a while and then added the other ingredients. It was so tangy and tickled the tongue! I have lots of company coming this month and I'm making it for everyone of them. Thank you so much!
