I use this Homemade Italian Dressing so frequently that I completely forgot that it wasn’t on the blog. Actually, it is on the blog, as the dressing for my Olive Garden’s Famous House Salad. It’s just so delicious that I thought it deserved it’s own post.
This recipe is very simple. No chopping and very little prep. All you need to do it throw all the ingredients in a mason jar, shake and you’re done. I also love this recipe because it’s homemade and has absolutely no preservatives or chemicals like a store bought dressing would.

New to AIP and like everyone- lead a busy life. This salad dressing is SO easy to put together! While I love fresh herbs in dressings that this one needs less work is a blessing and it tasted delicious!
Oh yeah. I'm glad you liked it. It's staple in my home.
Freshly made is better and this is terrific.
Hello, curious to know, is white vinegar AIP compliant? I recently read that white vinegar could be made of corn or wheat. I was shocked. Lol, I guess I thought vinegar just 'was'. Any information would be appreciated. I use Heinz white vinegar for cleaning and some cooking.
It's not! Good catch. The recipe should read white wine vinegar. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've updated the recipe.
