This dressing was really easy, but it didn’t wow me. It was good but I didn’t love it.
Homemade Italian Dressing
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil OR neutral vegetable oil, such as canola or safflower
1/4 cup white wine vinegar OR red wine vinegar OR a combo of the two
2 tablespoons water
1 to 2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
3/4 teaspoon dried parsley
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Measure all ingredients into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously until well-blended and emulsified. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt and pepper if necessary. (Alternatively, you may whisk ingredients together in a bowl, process ingredients in a mini food processor, or blend them in a blender.) Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator; allow to come to room temperature and shake well before using.
