Italian Salad Dressing Recipe is made with mayonnaise, sour cream, red wine vinegar, garlic and topped generously with Parmesan Cheese.
It is an old fashioned creamy dressing that was inspired by a small restaurant, Little Italy, overlooking the hills of the mountains in North Carolina more than thirty years ago.
This dressing is delicious on the tossed salad suggested below, including all the suggested vegetables, then served with grilled steaks and baked potatoes.
Of course, serve it with an Italian or steak dinner... all made at home.
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
