This easy Italian vinaigrette recipe has a lot of ingredients, but this salad dressing comes together quickly thanks to the use of a blender or food processor.
Serve this tossed with mixed greens, sliced apples, candied walnuts and bits of blue cheese, or try it in my Italian chopped salad recipe.
This vinaigrette will store in the refrigerator up to 6 weeks, or even freeze it for a few months. This makes enough to last quite a while!
