Tossed Italian Garden Salad Recipe

Tossed Italian Garden Salad Recipe

A fresh garden salad with homemade Italian-style dressing is the perfect accompaniment to my special lasagna. Nicely seasoned with garlic, herbs and a hint of lemon, the dressing is our family's favorite. As soon as the jar is empty, I make more. -Evelyn Gebhardt, Kasilof, Alaska
