From TOH and tweaked slightly. Huge--serves 24 but can be reduced, and simple to make. Ages well. Like the idea of putting the dry dressing directly on the veggies the day before. Times do not include chilling overnight. I can see varying this with mushrooms, black olives, etc. There are 2 tablespoons in one ounce so if reducing keep that in mind. There are many Italian dressing mixes posted here. Think it might be better to choose one that does not have sugar in it.
