Romaine with Creamy Italian Dressing

Romaine with Creamy Italian Dressing I love salad. Growing up I hated salad and we had it every night. I have been getting better about serving salad more often with dinner and Miss F has finally started to eat it, though she only eats lettuce and croutons. It's better than nothing, right? This salad dressing has the perfect tartness I look for in a dressing, the mayonnaise and parmesan amps up the richness. Once again, my mom's garden was a huge supplier for my dinner party salad. The only thing that didn't come from the garden was the red onion. This recipe is adapted from AllRecipes.
Romaine with Creamy Italian Dressing

½ cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar

5 cups romaine, chopped
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
½ red onion, sliced thin

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a blender until well mixed. Taste, add sugar if needed. Toss together the dressing with the romaine, tomato, bell pepper, cucumber and red onion. Serve.

I love homemade dressings. They really just can't be beat by a storebought bottled one!

This looks amazing. I can't wait until my kid starts liking salad. Even if it's only lettuce and croutons!
