Here is a delicious dressing to serve over your favorite greens! Because this is very similar to the famous "Olive Garden" recipe, it is delicious with Italian foods and also excellent as a garlic bread dip. Quick and easy, this dressing is best when prepared ahead of time and left to marinate in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
Place all ingredients in a blender until well mixed. If this is a little too tart for your own personal taste, add a little extra sugar. This salad dressing is good for about 10 days if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Serve over mixed greens with red onion slices, a can of rinsed and drained black olives, croutons, tomato, Parmesan cheese, and a banana pepper.
