Our family makes the best Italian green salad with homemade dressing! It’s simple, vegan, gluten free and the most requested recipe when we have friends over for dinner!
I feel a bit ridiculous posting our family’s salad recipe. But so many friends rave about it, and I always say I’ll share it someday. Today is the day! So, my friends…I give you The Best Italian Green Salad with Homemade Dressing.
In my family, we call this “The Salad.” Our friends refer to it as “That Sallladdd,” while rolling their eyes and swooning. It catches me off guard every time.
Don’t get me wrong; the salad is delicious. I could’ve called it “Cinderella Salad,” though, because it’s always there, doing its job. Growing up, we had this every.single.day. Back when everybody used iceberg lettuce, this salad wasn’t my favorite. But in the early 1990s, when we figured out iceberg has minimal nutritional value, we switched to tastier alternatives, like romaine and butter lettuce. For the first time in my life, I realized I actually liked this salad but wasn’t a fan of iceberg.
You don’t have to love pumpkin to enjoy these Peachy Pumpkin Scones with a peach tea glaze! Plus, I’m sharing one of my favorite stories we’ve been laughing about for nearly 35 years!

I’ve been dying to post some type of pumpkin treat. As the lone pumpkin lover in my household, it’s easier said than done. First, I can’t afford to consume an entire batch of dessert by myself (although, I did once, in my 20s; see my Pumpkin Delight Smoothie post from two years ago). Second, I can’t take the guilt induced by my loved ones who ask if I’m going to make something for them too? Ugh!…
