Eating your greens will be very easy with this Italian salad with homemade dressing, it tastes delicious!
My family love salads but especially this one that has a vinagrette flavor, the dressing is inspired by famous Olive Garden salad dressing.
This Italian salad with homemade dressing is easier than you imagine and the best thing is that you choose the quality of the ingredients of the dressing, I hope you enjoy it.
I serve it a few times as a starter or as a main course I just add a Milanese chicken or grilled chicken breast and ready, both ways it looks delicious!
