Homemade Salad Dressing

Homemade Salad Dressing

This is my recipe for my most popular salad dressing I make.  It’s a version of a creamy Italian dressing.  You don’t get any of the preservatives you would get in a store bought dressing.  That alone is worth the extra calories.  This is a very easy recipes and worth the ten minutes it takes to make.  Please try and let me know.
