Hey there…hope everyone is having a great week. Today, I ask for everyones positive well wishes. I have my doctor visit today and hope that I get this darn hard cast removed today! Fingers crossed 🙂
It has been majorly problematic to get a whole lot accomplished these past few weeks, but I have managed. I was even able to make my favorite Creamy Italian Dressing. There were some plump, juicy, vegetable stand tomatoes calling my name. I wanted to use them in a simple salad with this yummy dressing on top. I maneuvered my chair into the kitchen and set to work.
These are just some of the ingredients…
I created this dressing many years ago as a young bride. My Honey Bee and I had gone out to a “fancy” dinner one night and I ordered a creamy dressing. I loved the dressing but I couldn’t get the recipe from them. I was determined to recreate it at home…and this is what I came up with:
- 1 cup good mayonnaise
- 2 TBS red wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 TBS milk
- 1 TBS minced fresh garlic
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- Optional...basil as garnish
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill. Best if made ahead at least 4 hours...but not necessary.
May keep in fridge for one week.
Mix all of the ingredients together…
I placed leftovers in these cute little jars…
I roughly chopped the tomatoes and added a bit of salt and pepper. I hopped out onto our deck…yes, literally hopped…to grab some fresh basil.
…and poured on some Creamy Italian Dressing.
I’m sure I’ve shared with y’all before, that I love garlic – so I add extra to my mix.
This dressing is also very delicious on a tomato sandwich – and even more delicious if you add some bacon to that sandwich 🙂 I hope you give this recipe a try and let us know what you think!
