Sweet Italian Dressing

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Cali1951

I decided to cut out all the fuss and measuring. It sounds like a lot of sugar but it's not. This makes a great Sweet Italian Dressing for your salad that can also be used for Sweet & Sour Slaw, or a 3-Bean Salad.

I made this for a family dinner, and everyone loved it! I used cider vinegar (didn't have any red) and just went off the "V," "W," and "O" marks on my cruet instead of using a measuring cup. I added the 1/2 cup sugar at the end and shook it until it was well-mixed. It was a great change from the usual Italian. Everyone wanted the recipe! Thanks!
