"This dressing is great with artichoke and asparagus salad, and it's one of the easiest recipes I have! Using a good quality olive oil makes a big difference in this dressing."

Very nice vinaigrette because of the use of fresh basil, but very heavy on the oil. I cut the recipe in half and used less than half the amount of oil. Start off with a small amount of oil and add it according to your tastes and you'll have a nice dressing.

Excellent flavor! I used red-wine vinegar instead of baslamic and had to increase the vinegar just a little to suit my sour taste. But, I am getting rave reviews! Thanks Richard for sharing the recipe.

I loved this dressing! It looks a little dark and not so appealing once it is mixed up, but it tastes wonderful over just a basic salad. A good salad dressing to go with a beef dish.
