    I just discovered Kraft Signature's Creamy Poppyseed. Yummy. It's my new favorite. :D

    My own... white wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, dash of wholegrain mustard, a little pesto and a good shake. Delicious...

    Or just a spritz of balsamic vinegar

    That goes great with an avocado salad, but most other times, I'm too lazy to make my own salad dressing. :p

    My favorite is Calypso. Its hard to find, but some restaurants will carry it as a house.
    I also have a homemade dressing I learned to make from my german-born neighbor which is outstanding with tomatoes.

    Probably not since I reckon there are only so many ways to make a vinaigrette... I always find it fascinating to taste other people's recipes for something I make regularly... they are never the same.

    Actually, I've tried some dried basil and peppermints in my salad. It does add a nice spice to the salad in addition to the dressing.

    It's definitely an acquired taste. Much like Northern Star and other Sativa varieties.

    Some of us acquire those tastes very quickly :)

    i'm partial to a raspberry vinaigrette. but i prefer garden salads with it, for anything without spinach, I usually go ranch or thousand island. raspberry and spinach just compliment each other so nicely.

    Italian dressing is great.

    My mom's homemade salad and Wish bone italian is the best salad - fresh greens, delicious red onions, amazing cherry tomatoes, and the italian dressing is amazing. I'm going to have it in a few hours for dinner! YUM!

    And some restraunts have amazing house dressing.

    I prefer a nice fatty peppercorn ranch, but generally try to stick with a vinaigrette of some sort. I'm not real picky, as long as the salad itself is good. You shouldn't cover up the natural goodness with too much goop.

    Just say "no" to iceberg lettuce!

    I'm actually very spartan when it comes to my salad dressing. Just some good virgin olive oil with a dash of sea-salt and pepper. That's all. I sometimes add a few drops of balsamic vinegar when serving others, but personally I like it as simple as possible. :)

    Dude. There are days I crave iceberg lettuce. I mean, field greens are great, but iceberg lettuce rocks.

    Seriously.

    Blue Cheese and Ranch are my favorites.
    Once in a while I like Raspberry Vinaigrette.

    extra virgin olive oil + lemon juice + salt = one great dressing on spring greens.

    strawberries pureed with dill pickles works really well on spinach

    coarsly chopped cucumber + yoghurt+ lots of fresh garlic + saltnpepper = great summer dressing for tomato, onion and cucumber salad :)

    Sativa... yum...

    I like a poppyseed dressing generally, but will always hold a special place in my heart for a *real* caesar salad, straight up: Romain, caesar dressing, crutons, and parmesan. I'm a purist. :)
