Wonderful Dressings! Been working my way through the recipes, have always relied on grandson for the Balsamic and finally have a go to! The Onion and the Honey Mustard are winners as well. I do not doubt the rest will be just as good. Recipes have been added to my collection.

I made the Italian and Buttermilk Ranch and loved them both. Doesn't take long to make which is a plus. Will try the others at some point as I get tired of the same dressings all the time!

HONEY MUSTARD: What a wonderful dressing. I made this to serve with a salad and it was just perfect. The flavour was fantastic, creamy with just a slight tang. Everything I needed was on hand in the pantry which was an added bonus. I did add some seed mustard to the mix, but that was the only change everything else was as written. So simple and easy to make and so delicious. Onion Dressing: Quite a different dressing to the Honey Mustard dressing. This one is oil based and not a creamy dressing. I liked it and again it is a simple dressing to make, but I am not a fan of oily dressings, although a few in the family really liked it over their salad.
