Copycat Italian Salad Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars 14
My family prefers the store brand of Italian dressing to any of the name brands. They all pretty much taste the same and have the same ingredients. This is a copycat of their dressing using mostly ingredients from the cabinet most people keep on hand or can find easily. The water makes it stretch a little further for those on a tight budget, but you might also like it without.

Mock Potato Salad

Rating: 5 stars 1
We just love this as a great summer substitute when everyone is tired of the usual potato salad fare and you are overrun with fresh veggies from the garden. The cool and crunchy vegetables go well with the grains and you know your family is eating something high in fiber and very healthy. If your kids like potato salad, they will like this.
