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! Read More

Just by adding a few extra ingredients took this from being bottled dressing to something pretty darn tasty. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More
