This dressing is FANTASTIC!! This is exactly what I expect a French dressing to be; smooth, creamy and ORANGE, slightly sweet, slightly tangy, and just a tiny bit spicy. For years I have searched for a recipe for true French dressing that I could make fresh at home, and finding this one makes me so happy. I have made this recipe both with homemade mayo and with Hellmman’s and find them equally good (Hellmman’s also makes a good bottled French dressing; It is also a creamy orange dressing with no tomatoes or catsup, as are most of the other major brands of French).



This is awful. It tastes like mayonaise and I let it chill for 24 hours. The smell was horrible. I do not recommend this one.



wonderful i added lime juice to make it runnier and used hellman light i think it depends on your mayo if it is good one serving for me would be enough for 5 serings
