Rating: 4.23 stars
Add balsamic vinegar to your dressing to give it a fresh and lively taste!

Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing

Rating: 4.18 stars
This very light, fresh dressing works equally well on mixed greens, spinach or romaine, or just drizzled over sliced, fresh, ripe summer tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. Quick and easy to make fresh, but stores well for up to 3 months in the refrigerator. It's a family recipe brought over from the old country by my nonna (grandma.)

This smooth and creamy dressing has the pungency of lemon juice and red wine vinegar and the sweet spiciness of oregano and garlic.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Rating: 4.52 stars
This is a tangy vinaigrette--wonderful on mixed greens, tomato, onion and cucumber salads. It's also good if used sparingly over steamed veggies or stir-frys. Sometimes I use traditional balsamic vinegar. However, this will produce a slightly sweeter vinaigrette.

Copycat Italian Salad Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars
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.
