Portillo's Copycat Dressing

½ cup red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

½ cup olive oil

For the dressing: Place the vinegar, honey, Italian seasoning, garlic, some salt and pepper and olive oil in a jar with a tightfitting lid. Shake until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use. Shake again when ready to serve.

For the salad: Arrange the greens, carrots, red pepper, cucumber and chickpeas in rows on a platter or shallow serving bowl. Top with grated manchego cheese (do not use grate the rind).
