My mom and her cousin developed this tangy dressing many years ago. It really perks up salad greens and holds together well once mixed. Everyone wants the recipe once they try it.

We all know that oil and sugar in many salad dressings can pack on fat and calories, and Cindy Harnish of Wexford, Pennsylvania is no exception. She asked us to lighten this dressing without losing its sweet-and-sour tang, and our home economists delivered a delicious result. It has less than half the calories and fat and about 40% less carbohydrates than the original. — Taste of Home's Test Kitchen
"I simply love this creamy, fresh-tasting dressing! It’s so quick to assemble and adds a summery gourmet touch when drizzled over a salad. I often serve it with lettuce or fresh spinach tossed with sliced strawberries and sugared almonds," suggests Kendra Stoller in Kouts, Indiana.
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.
