The Best Italian Salad Dressing

This is one of my favorite salad dressings.  Its easy to make thanks to the squeeze bottle of crushed garlic that I always have on hand.  All the ingredients are things you probably already have in your pantry.  . After I’ve whisked it, I tend to taste it about 16 times, it is sooo good….Enjoy!


  • 1 tsp crushed or finely chopped garlic
  • 2 Tbl mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbl white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbl spoons) EVOO
  • salt & pepper to taste (about 1/8 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper is my fave)


  1. Add the garlic, mayonnaise, italian seasoning and vinegar to a bowl.  Whisk away.
  2. Whisk in the olive oil.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. It’s ready to go!  Toss with your favorite greens.


I used white wine vinegar but red wine vinegar would also work.  Our favorite salads are made with Romaine, olives, cherry tomatoes, a little cheese (parm or feta – or both!).
