Italian Dressing5 Comments

Back to the grind today, we had an awesome vacation in the Caymans and I will be sharing some pictures from our trip soon! We held turtles, swam and fed stingrays, and had an amazing time at the wedding. Now it is back to reality and the happenings in my kitchen.

So here I go on the whole sodium thing again, I promise one day you will thank me. Here we are with one of the most classic dressings that I grew up on, but without all that other junk loaded into it. This came together in less than ten minutes and it was just as delicious as those little packets. I didn’t plan out the most exciting salad for dinner, but the dressing made all the difference. It was the perfect accompaniment to the pasta dish we had. This is so good that I was may have been dipping my bread into the leftovers on my plate.

    I just made a batch of this dressing, minus the sugar – just not a fan of sweet dressings.

    It’s great but very thick; I’ll store it at room temperature so that it doesn’t get any thicker. I added a little water just to make it more ‘pourable’.

    Great! Thank you for the recipe!
