    The Love of Parmesan & Garlic

    Elizabeth Halfman from Davenport, IA

    To double the batch and keep the cost down, I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch and a cup of water as thickening agent. I followed by 3 chopped garlic toes. I did not add the garlic salt. I also doubled on the Parmesan cheese.

    Not a Bad Dressing

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    It tastes great, but unless all the ingredients are on sale it is far cheaper to purchase a good-quality bottled dressing. It doesn't have preservatives, so must be used in one sitting.

    Very Good

    pat martinez from PHOENIX, AZ

    For a diabetic, this is a great light salad if you use low fat cheeses and milk. It has many of the ingredients we need on a daily basis and it sure is filling. If you use the recipe ingredients suggested, this is enough for a meal!

    great flavors

    Linda Hitchcock from ALEXANDRIA, VA

    This makes a great salad dressing when serving a dinner of Italian foods. It's comparable to dressings found at a good salad bar.

    It's a keeper!

    Karen Reynolds from Tulsa, OK

    Made this twice; we liked it better with extra cream cheese for a creamier texture. The kids like to use it as dip for carrots and celery in their lunchboxes.

    Dressing

    Lorraine Spencer from Bellingham, MA

    I liked it but I thought you could taste the pepper too much. But I might use it again.

    I made this salad dressing over the weekend and got great reviews from my family at our Sunday night dinner. This dressing has a great taste and I have already been asked to keep making it.

    Great Dressing!

    Nell Able from Denver, CO

    This dressing is very good - easy to make = I added more cream cheese to the recipe to make it thicker. I've never made a salad dressing before, but this is a good one. Thanks.

    This dressing has a delicious flavor and is easy to make. I think 5 ounces of cream cheese is better, makes a creamier dressing.
