Homemade Italian Dressing
2 T. red wine vinegar
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup good olive oil
2 small cloves of garlic
3 T. 0% (fat free) Greek yogurt
freshly grated parmesan cheese
Put all ingredients in a small jar with a screw top and shake vigorously.
It’s that easy!
Note: I like to toss the dressing into a light salad of romaine lettuce, thinly sliced red onion rings, tomato wedges and grated mozzarella cheese. It reminds me of a delicious salad that we used to enjoy when the girls were young at a family restaurant called Peppino’s. The restaurant relocated years ago but I still remember the wonderful salad dressing.

These savory potatoes are gobbled up fast at my house. The delicious aroma brings everyone in the kitchen asking when dinner will be ready. I often double this recipe when guests are coming. They can be prepared up to 4 hours ahead so that all you have to do it pop them in the oven, under the broiler for 10-15 minutes and they are ready to serve.
