      Love the creamy stuff but vinegar and oil are supposed to be better for you.

      Gazebo Room Greek Salad Dressing is my favorite, and it's all natural and Gluten Free! It's actually the only store bought greek salad dressing that is better than the recipes I've found online and made myself.
