    I can't use vinegar. I'm going to try this with more lemon and dried mustard. Thanks

    I tried this with some roasted garlic oil I made replacing the olive oil. I thought that I would post it here.

    To Make Roasted Garlic Oil: Take 3 large cloves of garlic, cut in half. Drizzle with some olive oil and roast for about 15 min. in a 350* oven. Place the roasted garlic cloves in 1 c. of olive oil. Store in fridge for a week or two. Strain out the garlic cloves and replace in container. Keep in fridge to use in this dressing and in other recipes which you would want to use it in.

    UPDATE: Ok, I have taken liberties with your dressing, CB. Just letting you know. :-P As dinnertime approached, I realized that I was hungrier than just pasta alfredo, so I sauteed some veggies (portabellos, green pepper, bell pepper, onions and tomato) in some extra-virgin olive oil, tossed in a bratwurst (out of its casing, chopped), added about a half cup of my Budweiser to deglaze the pan, tossed the above with the pasta, the parmesan and cream for the alfredo, and about a half-cup of that wonderful dressing! Served it over greens and toasted french bread and once again, my boys are happy happy joy joy! Thanks for a great idea!

    I am making this today, got the garlic roasting right now. I think I'll serve it with my own pasta alfredo, which is simple and delicious.

    Thanks, coffeebean. :-)
