A wonderfully flavorful salad dressing that is so easy to prepare, and would be great on any salad of your choosing. I didn't have Kraft dressing (I had a store brand Italian salad dressing) which seemed to work fine, and I was grateful for a way to put it to good use. I absolutely had to add the garlic to the dressing, which gave it a nice little punch. I made the salad as directed, also, and ended up with a salad that I would happily have eaten for my entire meal! Made for Best of 2012 Tag Game.

Delicious and beautiful salad. We loved this for dinner. Made for Naked Recipes.

The salad was very good but the dressing was just ok. I think using bottled dressing (Kraft Tuscan dressing) just gave it a "bottled" dressing taste. I would suggest starting with a homemade Italian dressing or probably just trying a different recipe altogether. (15)
