Tangy Goodness: Creamy Italian Dressing
Now I mostly dress our salads with a vinaigrette made from EVOO, vinegar, garlic, a dab of mustard, salt, and pepper… easy-peasy. But then one night, the homemade mayo caught my eye as I reached into the fridge for the vinegar.

Creamy Italian Dressing from Well Fed
Serves 2-4 | Prep 5 min | Whole30 compliant
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herb blend or dried oregano leaves
1/4 cup homemade Olive Oil Mayo
1/2 clove garlic, minced (about 1/2 teaspoon)
2 tablespoons vinegar: balsamic, red wine, or cider
salt & ground black pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, crush the dried herbs with your fingers, then add mayo and garlic. Blend well with a fork.
Drizzle in the vinegar, mixing with the fork, then taste and season with salt and pepper. If your dressing is too thick, add either vinegar or water–a 1/4 teaspoon at a time–until it’s the right consistency. Keep in mind that it will thin slightly as you toss it with your salad ingredients..
