Is Italian Dressing Gluten Free?


We’re right in the middle of Summer season now and besides BBQs, there’s one thing I often crave: salad. It has to have dressing – of course. But does Italian dressing have gluten?

What’s so great about this recipe is that it’s very versatile. You can use red wine vinegar if you’d prefer. The end product tastes very similar, regardless of what you use. 

Traditional Italian Dressing

This is the dressing I prefer. It’s creamy and delicious. Most shop-bought creamy Italian dressings are quite unhealthy, mainly because milk-based products are added.

Shop-Bought Salad Dressing

Although, homemade is much healthier and ready made in just 5 minutes, you may opt to buy your salad dressing from a store instead.
