    Instead of rosemary, I used fresh basil in my vinaigrette. It was very good. This is an easy recipe to make for a salad to take to work or have at night when you don't feel like going through a big production.

    This was absolutely amazing! I used it as a marinade for pork chops but I will make it for salads as well! My guests loved it.

    This vinaigrette is was a HUGE hit on a mixed field-greens salad at book club - my friends couldn't get the recipe fast enough!!

    I used this for a spinach salad and as a marinade for Boneless Pork Loin Chops and it was fantastic. The whole family was drooling as I grilled the meat. I would highly recommend this for any occasion. My 18 year old son said these were the best pork chops he had ever had because of the delicious marinade. Bon Appetite
