There’s just something about a good dressing. It can totally make or break a meal. I take great pride in my assortment of delicious and healthy, homemade salad dressings but my Homemade Creamy Italian Dressing Recipe is my latest and possibly the greatest!

I consider myself to be a salad dressing consiuer. No seriously, I do….  No, I’m not joking. I have this thing for amazing salad dressings and my Creamy Italian Dressing  is one of those which you NEED in your rotation of salad delicicouness.

And this recipe for a Low-Carb & Keto Creamy Italian Dressing is also Paleo, Dairy-Free & Vegetarian, too!

Before you ask… the adorable salad dressing container featured in these photos can be found HERE.

I don’t say “greatest” lightly either.

I’m famous for my homemade ranch but this MIGHT be even better. At the very least running a close 2nd, if there was a completion.

When you are adopting or sticking to a Paleo, Low-carb or Ketogenic diet, it’s the little things that make all the difference. For me I can eat the basics all day long  (meat and veggies), pending I have delicious sauces and dips to rotate in. (I mean, in addition to butter, because butter is keto-life for me)

There is one side effect to making a delicious homemade salad dressing (like this Homemade Creamy Italian Dressing Recipe) is that you will accidentally eat MORE veggies. You didn’t mean to, but you just can’t stop eating salads!

Salads = Veggies and we can all benefit from more leafy greens in our diets, right?!?
