Not much dressing for 6 servings. It only makes 7 tbsp. Is that correct?

Hi Mary! Sorry, no, I don't. I don't pay much attention to nutritional info because I try to fill my diet with things without labels. :) There are a lot of websites out there that will figure it for you.

Finally made this and took it to a family party the other week, where it was devoured within minutes. So, one thing though my dressing turned out like SUPER thick, is that normal. Like...take-the-top- off-the-cruet-and-use-a-fork-because-none-will-come-out kind of thick. And actually, now that you mention it, that always happens to me and salad dressing. Any tips for that?
