I made this dressing today for my grilled chicken salad and it is delicious. It has lots of flavor and it really enhanced my beautiful meal. I will make this weekly to always have it on hand. It was very easy to make with my blender. I highly recommend this dressing.

Yummy! I love a nice sharp dressing. I usually wing it with salad dressing, but it's nice to have a solid recipe I can keep in a jar in the fridge.

Wow! This is some super-umami dressing. I am always adding a dash of Worcestershire (and Tobasco) to recipes but I never, ever thought to add it to a vinaigrette! But it totally makes sense when one considers the ingredients of the ubiquitous Ceasar salad. Indeed, I can only lament, "Why did I never think of this." Lucky for me Brussel Sprouts did. The only thing I did change was roasting the garlic cloves in their skin/coated in olive oil for 20 min at 400 degrees because my family is not a big fan of raw garlic. Winner, winner salad dinner. Thank you Brussel Sprouts for Breakfast.
