My creamy Italian dressing is OK, but could be better....

Anybody have a great creamy Italian dressing recipe? I know "creamy" dressings add fat and calories to salads, but unless the dressing is really tasty, I tend to skip the salad. I find vinaigrettes just are too sour or bitter, and sting my teeth. A yummy dressing would really help me and DH to eat more salads and get those greens into our diet! Thank you!

If you're curious about what I'm making now, (so you can help me make it better,) here's the recipe I'm working with:

1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar or lemon juice
2 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, minced

it seems there's something missing! There's a great pizza place near me that has an amazing creamy Italian dressing, and they just laugh when I ask for the recipe! Keeps me coming back for more and paying $7.50 for salad!!
