  • Makes
    1/2 cup dressing

  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • Romaine or other lettuce
  • Tomatoes, mushrooms, cucumber, olives and/or other vegetables of choice

    I agree, this was just okay. Seems like it's called "Italian Salad" only because of the 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning! I would add some sliced pepperoncini.

    The salad was good, but the dressing was just okay. I would make it again, but it's not my absolute favorite.
