Excellent basic Italian dressing. Perfection in simplicity. Thx. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Added 2 Tbsp Grey Poupon, 1 tsp Roasted Garlic and was great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it !!! Wasn't sure it would be t-h-a-t good, but it was !!!!!! Only change I made, was to not add as much oil - I used 2/3 cup oil and 1/3 cup water. It was probably more watery, but I don't like heavy dressing. DELICIOUS!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was tasty vinaigrette. The only modification I would make is adding 2 more tablespoons of honey and using only 1/4 of red wine vinegar. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderful robust flavor. Great on salads(vegetable or pasta a must add to your recipe box. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic! I used a local meyer lemon olive oil and threw a handful of basil in for good measure. Turned into a gorgeous green dressing and was mouthwatering on top of nectarines wrapped in proscuitto. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVED this salad dressing. It was so simple and so tasty. I usually use bottled salad dressing, but this was so fresh-tasting and light that this will be a go-to dressing for a long time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Never making again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love vinaigrettes, but this was too dull and not spicy enough. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My boyfriend and I made this on a hot summer night and it was perfect, after slight adjustment. We only used 1 teaspoon salt and then probably closer to 4 teaspoons honey - we thought it needed a little more sweet to balance out the zing of the red wine/lemon juice. We also think it was only so good because of the salad we paired it with. We used primarily sweeter ingredients on a spinach salad to balance things out (cucumber, dried cherries, asian pears, avocado) and then also some toasted slivered almonds. DEE-lish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you like a really STRONG red wine vinegar flavor then you will love this.... this actually made me choke and i only used a 1/4 cup plus i added over a cup of olive oil.... this was way too strong! Disappointed that i wasted that much olive oil too! After reading all the posts .... it's amazing how everyone "tastes" something different. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm a sweet kinda girl so I added a little extra honey. Perfect for my salad with dried canberries, mandarin oranges, pecans and strawberries in an italian salad mix. Big hit with the fam and super fast to make with common staples everyone has in the house. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is found on numerous websites, so as to whom copied whom, I am sure no one knows. The one thing that is important here though is, this recipe is horrible. A lot of adjustments are needed to be made to make this recipe edible. I may be trying to eat with Texas taste bud's in an Italian restaurant, but my my my, I have traveled and it does not take a genius to figure out when something tastes off. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cut the salt in half, add teaspoon of parsley 1 clove of garlic a dash of dijon mustard 1 teaspoon of grated parmesean VERY NICE item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would of rated it a 5 star but there is something wrong with the taste, but it was still good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wont be using this recipe again. I looked at it one time and knew it was too much salt, but decided i'd go against my instinct. I was right. It also lacks any flavor besides oil. I'm better off just winging it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's Great On Pizza! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is really good. However, I thought it needed just a little more flavor, so I added 2 cloves of fresh, minced garlic, a dash of dijon mustard, and a little freshly grated parmesan cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We prefer our sald dressing with more vinegar and less oil, so I used 3/4 cup each of the red wine vinegar and olive oil and it turned out great. I agree with the comment from another reviewer that the quality of the vinegar is the key to this recipe. A good quality vinegar will have a lot of flavor without a harsh taste. This is a great recipe and very easy to make. I usually have everything on hand so I can mix it up in a few minutes. I do not even bother using the blender (since the dressing separates anyway), I put everything in a jar and shake it up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was easy and it made LOTS of dressing, However, the flavor was a little lacking. It tasted like something was missing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
the recipe is already present in http://www.vinaigretterecipe.com/recipes/RedWineVinaigrette.htm item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this as written, and it's delicious. I think the key to makind salad dressings is to use a good quality vinegar. I've also made this recipe with the addition of 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard & a clove of garlic; very tangy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dressing is inedible. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was flavorless to me. It for sure was missing it's Zing! I was easy to make, but needed some more flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The vinairgrette lacked energy. Personal tastes I guess. Two teaspoons of salt was kind of scarey. Seemed like way too much to me, so I didn't do it. Could be why it was boring. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great with Roasted Room Temp Asparagus and goat-cheese salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Far better than store bought. And as typical of Giada's recipes, this dressing is light and flavorful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Perfect blend of flavors with the salad. Love it. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I loved this vinaigrette. My 10-year-old son even liked it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best dressing I have ever made. I make the full recipe all the time. It is the same dressing Giada uses on her Italian Chicken Salad and her Antipasto Salad. It is the only dressing I use now. If it is too acidic use less vinegar and lemon juice. It does separate of course so you need to shake it or wisk it every time before you use it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was easy to make and tasted great; tangy and savory, but with a hint of sweetness from the honey! I used it with an iceberg wedge, some chopped tomatoes and walnuts and crumbled bleu cheese...delicious! It will be a staple dressing for me! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent recipe, used with a simple salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dressing took me under five minutes to make! I just put it over a simple tossed salad but it made it special. It does settle pretty quickly after you take it off of the blender so make sure that you put it in a container you can shake or put back on the blender. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everyone raves about this. I have used it with other salad creations of my own and it goes so well! item not reviewed by moderator and published
