This makeover recipe is ideal for spinach. It's also a great way to dress up chicken salad or coleslaw. Yet it has less than half the calories and fat of the original dressing and about 40% less carbohydrates.—Cindy Harnish, Wexford, Pennsylvania
I always have this dressing on hand, since it yields a large jar. Italian salad dressing is versatile and compatible with many combinations of vegetables, so the cook can get creative. —Maxine Johnson
My ladies group at church printed a cookbook several years ago, and this recipe was in the book, with no name attached. I serve it over mixed greens, drizzle it over sliced tomatoes and cucumbers and even use it as a dressing for coleslaw.
