Italian Salad Dressing

     This is my favorite Italian dressing, but it’s not exactly “lite”. It tastes so good compared to off-the-shelf dressings! My mother-in-law taught me how to make it.

Ingredients:
2 packets Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing Mix 
(half 2.4-oz. box)
½ c. red wine vinegar
¼ c. cold water
1  1/3 c. vegetable oil

Directions:
1. In blender, thoroughly mix vinegar, water, and salad dressing mix.

2. Slowly add oil through hole in the lid while blender is ON. (Stream of oil should be about as thick as a pencil.) You want the oil and other liquids to emulsify, so they won’t separate later.
There you go
