A few notes about this Italian Vinaigrette Dressing:
- If you are looking for a creamy Italian vinaigrette recipe, simply substitute half of the oil with mayonnaise. This will give you a delicious dairy free creamy dressing.
- For a delicious balsamic vinaigrette recipe, simply replace the red wine vinegar with balsamic.
- Don’t have a shallot on hand to make this Italian Vinaigrette Dressing? Simply add a little more garlic and minced onion.
- In addition to being a great low carb salad dressing recipe, this also makes a great marinade for poultry and seafood.
