Italian Dressing

You know that pair of pants that go with everything? Pink shirt? Yup, those pants work perfectly. Sequined tank top? Looks perfect with those pair of pants! Well, this Italian dressing goes perfectly with everything. It's light and acidic enough to provide a balancing act to rich, savory dishes like pasta, Chinese pulled pork, or shredded beef sandwiches.

The longer this Italian dressing sits, the better. So, I suggest making it in the morning and let it sit in the refrigerator for the remaining of the day.

Italian Dressing Salad Ideas

It may seem like a lot of onions, but honestly, the onions are what make this salad so special. They get slightly pickled in the vinegar, so they add a nice crunchy acidic pop. The fresh parsley provides some herbaceous notes, which cuts the richness of the oil.

If you're looking to make this salad an entree, I suggest adding gyro meat from your local Greek restaurant and crumbled feta. You could also add blue cheese, diced apple, and grilled steak.
