Italian-style salad dressing
Genious! Who knew that just a couple of ingredients you have on hand could do so much for a bottle of store bought dressing! I used Kraft light italian dressing and overall, it was very good!
A recipe for Italian dressing should NOT have Italian dressing in its ingredients list!!! This is not a recipe!
Just by adding a few extra ingredients took this from being bottled dressing to something pretty darn tasty.
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Made it when I had some guest over for dinner. The salad was a HUGE hit! Everyone RAVED about the dressing. super easy and oh soooo tasty!!!
A great way to jazz up a cheap bottle of dressing from the dented can store. I used half for a salad and half as a marinade for veggie kabobs and pork chops on the grill. Will make again.
Mine did not turn out great... maybe my cheap bottled dressing was the culprit.
I bought a bottle of dressing from the dollar tree to save myself a trip. Big mistake it was really awful. I jazzed it up with the recipe and threw in a bit of fresh grated parm. Just what it needed now the entire bottle wont go to waste. Nice way to put a fresh spin on something that was blah. Thanks for the submission!
Can't believe how easy it is to freshen up a bottle of store bought dressing. I think the key is to start with a good base - I used family style italian from that handsome blue-eyed actor. The sugar took the edge off the acidic tartness you can get from the vinegar. The fresh garlic brightened up the flavor. If I am in a pinch and don't have time to make a homeade dressing - this will do the trick.
