I am not a big fan of ranch dressing, however, I loved this...it is more of a cross between a green goddess and ranch but something I definitely serve to guests I served it with the sauteed sole with browned butter and capers and it made a wonderful pair...they both were very quick to prepare

This is a very thin dressing and has the aftertaste of some bottled reduced-fat dressings. I thought it needed an extra kick as well, such as dill or anchovy paste might bring. Once I added just a bit of anchovy paste and let it sit in the fridge overnight, it was much improved, but still not good enough to make the regular rotation.

Made to recipe mid-morning for the evening meal and got a thick dressing with a strong kick -- must have gotten a head of extra-strength garlic. Served with CL's rosemary grilled steak. Excellent meal.

My husband liked this, but I was disappointed. I expected more of a classic ranch dressing. I did omit the garlic and thyme.

As a Weight Watcher's member, I am always looking for tasty dressings without the fat. The fresh herbs made a tangy salad with ample dressing at just one WWer's point. I would also enjoy this dressing as a dip with pita chips or raw veggies. I served this salad with Grilled Snapper with Orange Tarragon Butter. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Just OK. I think both the dressing and the salad could be a lot more interesting, and there are many better salad dressings among the Cooking Light recipes.

I love this recipe. I use the dressing for lots of different salads - it is like using ranch, but healthier. The only thing I changed was to use 1t. dried thyme instead of fresh because I didnt have it fresh on hand.

This was just OK as it was VERY runny and not thick as pictured.

I really liked this one...I have other Ranch type dressings, but this is good and easy. I didn't have all the fresh herbs on hand so just used dried. Next time, I will get the fresh herbs, though. I have been eating this all week!!

I try not to review recipes that I make any atlerations to because it's really not a true review at that point. However, I liked this one enough with the changes that I thought I'd share. I used half real mayo and half light. I didnt have any white wine vinegar on hand but I did have tarragon vinegar and that really made it I think. I generally dislike most light dressings but I was really excited about this one and it will be in my fridge on a regular basis. Finally!
