This Italian dressing recipe is so easy to make. Just throw a few fresh ingredients in a bottle and shake.
With a dressing this easy, there’s no excuse for using packaged salad dressings with industrial oils, sugars, and thickeners. This quick homemade Italian dressing tastes so much better, and is so much better for you. And it’s naturally paleo, gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free.
The great thing about making your own dressing is that you can make it the way you like it. Add more garlic, use different herbs, or adjust the ratio of red wine vinegar to olive oil. I like a tangy Italian dressing, so this 1:3 ratio is perfect for me. Of course, you can always adjust the ratio to your taste.
When the dressing is stored in the refrigerator, the olive oil will thicken a bit. I just take it out of the fridge before I start making the salad. Then by the time I’m ready for the dressing, a quick shake is all it needs.
