Italian Salad Dressing

When you go to the supermarket these days, they have a salad bar. This is where I go sometimes to pick out just the ingredients for my salad, rather than purchase the ingredients separately. It's cheaper and faster.

However, if you live in an area that doesn't have a Schnucks Superstore like we do here, just pick up from the store your favorite ingredients and leafy greens or iceberg lettuce. In a bowl, have just your salad greens. I have never measured this and will give it to you just as I do it and hope you can follow. What you are going to do is sprinkle over the top of the greens without tossing until the very end:

SPRINKLE ON TOP YOUR GREENS: (lightly)

salt
pepper
sugar
celery salt
garlic powder
onion powder

DRIZZLE: (lightly) red wine vinegar vegetable oil (or 1/8 cup vinegar 1/4 cup oil)

You say, why not mix all these ingredients together and pour it over greens? Well, you can but I prefer to do it this way because you mix with the salad the Italian way, with your hands and place it in a bowl and that's when you put your toppings on. If you put different meats in, serve with hot Italian or French bread, Mama Mia, you will have a meal!
