Making my own salad dressing has been so liberating.I hated going to the fridge expecting to find my favorite dressing, only to find that someone has finished the last of it and failed to inform me. I’ll admit that I still will pick up a bottle of dressing now and again for convince but I don’t care if they tell me that it’s run out or not. When I’m ready for the best dressing, I just whip up a batch of my own.

What you need to make creamy Italian salad dressing

Mayo
Red wine vinegar
Olive oil
Garlic cloves
Parmesan cheese
Cracked black pepper

This recipe is straight to the point. I’m using prepared Italian Dressing Seasoning for most of the flavor and prepared mayonnaise as the creamy base. I like the addition of the fresh garlic cloves because you can really taste it in the dressing, but you can substitute it with about a teaspoon of garlic powder. As for the parmesan cheese, I use this powdered shelf kind but please use freshly grated if you have it.
