It’s true that I’m a total sucker for a good ranch dressing, but I grew up on Italian salad dressing and I still love it!

There’s just something about a nice, tangy dressing that makes a salad really pop. 

We eat salads pretty regularly in my house. Let’s be honest: they’re easy, healthy, and almost always a hit. 

I also love to grill chicken or veggies that have been marinaded in this Italian salad dressing. Simple and delicious!
