Creamy Italian Dressing

1 cup REAL mayonnaise (not salad dressing)
1/2 small onion (use a MILD onion)
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons white sugar
3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a blender or food processor, combine mayonnaise, onion, vinegar, and sugar. Season with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate over night.

This dressing is perfect on any salad and is especially if you boil 1 pkg penne pasta, drain, rinse, set aside. Chop 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, ½ cup chopped black olives, add to pasta and stir in dressing. Refrigerate until cold and eat. Yummy!
