By Request:: My Italian Salad Dressing


Mom made this Italian Salad Dressing and I'm carrying on the tradition.  Grandchildren LOVE it!!


Shake well and toss making sure all is coated with this great basic Italian Salad Dressing.

Blend well to allow seasonings to flavor the oil and vinegar.   Let stand for approx. 15 to 30 minutes before tossing with lettuce..

1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar for Balsamic for a slightly sweeter taste
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder 
dash dried parsley
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. sugar(taste test)
1/4  tsp. salt (taste test)
1/4 tsp. pepper
black olives 
shredded mozzarella cheese garnish
grated Pecorino Romano cheese garnish
Mix well and toss with Lettuce Mix of your choice. I use:
1 plum tomato(chopped)
2 scallions (chopped)or sliced red onion
Black Olives, lots of them :)
Romaine, Iceberg, Bibb, Red or green leaf Lettuce
Some grated Pecorino Romano cheese, Blue cheese or feta crumbles..  Bon Appetite!
