Use the best quality olive oil for the dressing. It's easy to make and tastes great poured on artichokes, asparagus, or green leafy salad.
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. - 18 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 23 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 11 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
