HERBY ITALIAN SALAD DRESSING from Treble in the Kitchen

While I can remember baking a bazillion cookies when I was younger, the first savory dish I claimed as my own in the kitchen was salad (big shocker…right?).

My dad taught me early on how to make a wonderful homemade Italian dressing.  Typically, I make the dressing AS I’m making the salad.  It’s always been the type of recipe where I throw in a bit of this and a bit of that…taste, taste, taste until it’s just right, then serve the salad.

While that works just fine when I’m making the salads, I decided it was time we had something on hand so that anyone (Brian…) could make a salad with delicious non-bottled dressing.

I’m all about reading ingredient and nutrition labels, and I don’t know if you’ve turned your bottle of dressing around recently but last time I checked most bottled dressings have some crazy ingredients including added sugar.  Yikes!

This dressing is FULL of herbs to give it plenty of flavor, contains ZERO preservatives, and no added sugar.

While the dressing tastes wonderful on top of your favorite salad, it can also be used to marinade your favorite protein, you can toss veggies in it before roasting, or do anything you would do with your favorite bottled dressing.

I hope you enjoy this dressing and add it to your refrigerator staples!

Comments

  1. Thanks so much for this recipe! I love Italian dressing but haven’t made my own before. I can’t wait to give this a try.

  2. I’m always telling my mom to make her own…but she just keeps buying terrible bottled ones :/ She never listens! Haha!

  3. Genius! I love Italian dressing, but you are right, the store-bought items contain far too much sugar for my liking. I usually just make an olive oil dressing with herbes de provence, red pepper flakes, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I’ll have to give this a try.

  4. Italian salad dressing is my fav but the store-bought has so many preservatices! Thanks for sharing!
