READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Little Old Me

Another great basic.. Updated! For "Gift-in-a-Jar" fans this makes a great dry mix. Also great sprinkled over pot roast or chicken.

Top Review by Suzie

My ex-husband's family was Italian, and my father-in-law would always make his dressing from scratch. I have tried for years to no avail. Until now. Thank you sooo much for a wonderful recipe. Next time, though, I'm going to cut back on the oregano. It calls for more oregano than I personally care for. Thanks for sharing.
