Recipe by Kate in Ontario

This recipe began as an oops I'm out of Italian dressing! I was about to make my low fat Italian potatoes posted here as well. I looked in the refrigerator and improvised with what I had.

I've made this twice in the last week! The first time with Ceasar dressing and the 2nd with Garlic Ranch. Both were excellent! I have to say the 2nd was really flavorful! Thanks!
