This creamy Italian dressing is super delicious when used for a cool summer Parmesan Chicken Salad.

I love salads but loathe bottled dressing. I think people use them because they do not realize just how easy it is to make your own dressing to keep in the fridge.

Toss your favorite lettuce, 2 cups per person - butter lettuce, romaine, baby spinach, anything you like - in a big bowl with some of the Creamy Italian Dressing you've made. I use 2 tablespoons of dressing for each 2 cups of greens.

DIVIDE THE DRESSED LETTUCE ONTO THE DINNER PLATES, top each plate with a few tomato slices and a pan sautéed, thin sliced chicken cutlet. If you love parmesan, adding more freshly grated over the top of everything, puts this dish over the top!
