A big bottle of Italian dressing is a must-have in your fridge — or is it? Chances are, you have everything to make a super zesty Italian vinaigrette in your cabinets already. Traditional vinaigrettes have a 4-to-1 ratio of oil to vinegar, but we evened the playing field to really boost the flavors of this dressing.
- 1/4 Cup olive oil
- 1/4 Cup red wine vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 Teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 Teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1/2 Teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Step 1: In a medium sized bowl, add all ingredients.
Step 2: Whisk together until well combined.
Step 3: Add to your favorite salad. We like romaine lettuce topped with grilled chicken, pepperoncini peppers, red onion, cherry tomatoes, black olives, Parmesan cheese and homemade croutons.
