Forget the store bought Italian dressing, this is the by far the most delicious Italian dressing ever! This dressing is also great on pasta and perfect for dipping bread in without worrying about sodium intake. Add 1/2 teaspoon black pepper for additional zest...perfect!
I made this as stated in the recipe. and really like it. I eat a lot of salads and I am trying to limit my sodium intake so feel very healthly with this recipe! Will keep this in frig all the time. Thanks for sharing.
Quite good--I made a half-recipe, using my Seasoning Mixture for Chicken and Turkey #101943 in place of the Mrs. Dash, and used it to season HokeyLady's Chicken & Broccoli Bow-Tie Pasta Salad. It accented the chicken nicely.
