Are you looking for a delicious anti-inflammatory salad dressing?  Are you a fan of Italian dressings but you don’t want the preservatives found in store-bought dressings?  Try this fresh, bright Italian Citrus Dressing to give your usual recipe a little bit of a twist.

Italian Citrus Dressing is a fantastic flavorful lemony fresh tasting Italian salad dressing with an excellent taste combining olive oil, fresh lemon juice and Italian herbs.

This is one of my favorite salad dressings. It works on a simple salad or with your favorite protein with a cool salad on top. It is also delicious with your favorite salad that includes fruit or as a marinade for vegetables!  Always make more salad dressing than you’ll need. It takes no longer to mix a big batch, and it means tomorrow’s salad will be ready in minutes.
