"This dressing was alright but I think it would have been better without so many different herbs."

"I used this dressing on elbow macaroni, onion, celery and green peppers. I followed bberg's advice and omitted the thyme and olive oil (doubling the mayo). It was good but had to add a little more sugar."

"This dressing was OK but not my favorite. I think it was too much olive oil for my taste. Also, a mixture of too many herbs."
