  1. This was very yummy. I thought I had champagne vinegar but didn’t so I used rice vinegar instead. My husband and I. both enjoyed it.

  2. Thank you for this recipe! This is amazing! Loved it! I’ve made it twice now. The second time I put fresh basil from my garden in it, cracked the salt and pepper on top and drizzled olive oil. So good!

  4. What volume of dressing does this make? I imagine that it would be around 1/2 cup. Is this correct?

    Thank you.
