Italian Salad Dressing Recipe


Italian Salad Dressing Recipe. Made with mayonnaise, sour cream, red wine vinegar, garlic.

Top 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.

It's awesome with a full Italian dinner and a glass of your favorite wine or beverage.

Old Fashioned Creamy Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Romano cheese
  • McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning*

Blend mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt together in a bowl.

Mix thoroughly.

Fold in cheeses or sprinkle on top and refrigerate until ready to use.

When ready to serve, top salad with dressing and sprinkle generously with the Salad Supreme Seasoning.

Italian Salad Made Easy


Place torn bits of lettuce, sliced or cubed tomatoes, sliced celery, and sliced cucumbers in a salad bowl or plate.  Then spoon the dressing over the vegetables.

Optional: Add sliced carrots, chopped broccoli, chopped bell pepper (green, red, or yellow), black olives, onions, or other raw vegetables to your taste.

Top it generously with the dressing made from your Italian Salad Dressing Recipe, above.

Make it your way.

Use as a great dip for Chicken Tenders or Chicken Fingers.

Garlic Bread

  • 1 loaf bread, thick sliced
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 garlic clove, juiced

To make it, spread thick slices of bread with butter, sprinkle generously with freshly squeezed garlic juice, and toast under broiler.

Add mozzarella cheese to the side that was toasted last and return under broiler a few minutes to melt, if desired.
