Creamy Italian Dressing

This is a wonderful dressing! It is tangy with a bit of a kick and goes great with any veggies. i served it with a salad of romaine, carrot shreds, and cucumber chunks. It would be great with chicken as a main dish salad, also. You can use full fat versions of the mayonnaise and sour cream, but as I noted below, lighter options work just great. I went the easy way with the croutons and bought some Texas Toast Ceasar croutons from the store, which were really good for store bought croutons!! Our guests really enjoyed this meal also.
Creamy Italian Dressing

1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup light or fat free sour cream
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 to 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, depending on taste preferences

Whisk together vinegar, lemon juice, honey, garlic, Italian seasoning, and parsley. Stir in mayonnaise, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, salt, and cayenne pepper.
