I have been looking in stores and restaurants for a great creamy Italian because I am super picky, this is bar far the best and so easy to make, kudos.

I really enjoyed this dressing. Only had garlic powder in the cabinet so I simply added salt to taste. I also added 1T parmesan cheese. This will be fantastic as a veggie dip! Thanks.

Very good dressing, could really taste the rosemary. Very easy to make and DH finished all of it on his salad.

Awesome salad dressing and so easy because everything needed was already in my pantry. I was on the hunt for a dressing not as strong as a Caesar dressing and not as acidic as the regular oil and vinegar Italian. This is just perfect. The only change I made was to use fresh basil because that is what was on hand. This baby is going to get frequent flyer miles at my house. Thanks so much for sharing!

I am so glad I found this recipe. It is wonderful, and so easy! The first time I made this, I had to do without the rosemary (realized I was out), and use rice vinegar instead of cider vinegar. Even with these changes, the dressing was marvelous! My husband immediately declared that we must have this again, and was so eager to try it with the rosemary -- something he loves -- that the next time he went shopping, he came home with rosemary specifically so we could make this dressing again. :) The only thing I change from the recipe is to use Smart Balance sandwich spread (a heart-healthy mayo) instead of regular mayo. Thanks so much for a great addition to our recipe collection!

This is really good! I used low-fat mayo and it worked very well for my salad. It is nice to make homemade dressing that actually tastes good without all the chemicals from the bottled dressings. I doubled the recipe for a big salad for 8 of us. Thanks for posting!

4 1/2 stars good. I used Hellman's olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free, extra 2% milk to make it a thinner consistency, organic apple cider vinegar, only garlic salt but I found the dressing a bit too salty (I did not replace all the garlic powder either), freshly ground black pepper, plus the rest of the ingredients. I think some yogurt would make a good addition to mellow the salty taste. I'll try another recipe next time.

Thank you thank you MizzNezz for this recipe, I am loving it! Easy to make with ingredients normally at hand, and not too strongly flavored that it isn't versatile. Very easy to modify for a different flavor also. I find it fine with just the amount of milk specified, but I do use homemade mayo so perhaps it is thinner than commercial mayos to start with. Also I used jarred minced garlic rather than the salt, as I prefer the taste of it. Haven't tried it with parmesan added but I think it would also be a great addition to it! Thanks again for a great recipe!

This is excellent as written. To jump up the flavor, I did add some grated parmesan cheese, but, honestly it really doesn't need it. I was serving this for 12 people so I doubled the recipe and thought I needed to really double it again (we like lot of dressing on our salad and since we usually only eat salad for our evening meals I do make a large portion for everyone. Very, very good.
