Creamy Italian Salad Dressing



  1. In a small bowl, mix together minced garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, and spices.
  2. Let stand for 10 minutes. This will bring out the full flavor of the garlic.
  3. Add mayonnaise to bowl. Whisk vigorously until well-incorporated.
  4. Slowly drizzle olive oil into the bowl; whisking as you pour. Take your time with this step, spending up to a minute incorporating the olive oil. This method will allow the ingredients to mesh together and make a smooth, well-incorporated salad dressing.


This is enough dressing for one head of lettuce. I use olive oil but you could substitute your favorite vegetable based oil, like safflower oil. Croutons are a really nice compliment to this dressing.
