This Low Carb Creamy Italian Dressing is such a pungently, flavored sauce that it will “dress up'” the simplest of salads. Try it on romaine lettuce, onion, and radishes. Add tomatoes, avocados or cucumbers to this delicious combination for an exceptional salad. Keep this dressing handy and you’ll be ready for a delightful salad anytime.
Although this dressing is a healthy blend of herbs and spices none of them are special ingredients and most can be found in your kitchen cabinets at all times. So hurry and make this one, you won’t be sorry you did!
This unique homemade salad dressing joins these other “House Dressings” from my kitchen to yours:
This low carb Thousand Island Dressing was and still is my husband’s favorite salad dressing, before and after it’s healthy conversion.
Zesty Tomato Vinaigrette dressing uses fresh tomatoes to make a fantastic salad dressing that reminds us of the house dressing at our favorite mom and pop Italian restaurant.
I hope you get a chance to try them all soon and keep your fridge stocked and ready for great, on plan, salad dressings.
To get this recipe for Low Carb Creamy Italian Dressing – THM-S creamy you’ll need an appliance with blades. This “machine” can be as simple as an immersion blender (which I use often), as handy as the little Cuisinart Mini Food Processor that I find to be invaluable in my THM kitchen or as high powered as a next generation, low profile container Vitamix. I’ve owned my Vitamix for 19 years and it is still going strong but if I bought a new machine it would be the one I’ve linked!

- This dressing will turn solid in the fridge, but just setting it out at room temp before you begin to prepare the meal will normally get it back to a liquid state.
1 1/4 cups olive oil may be used and the refined coconut oil omitted but I like the combination of high quality refined (no flavor) coconut oil and olive oil better.
All red wine vinegar may be used but again, I like the flavors of the red wine combined with the acv best.
