TGIF everyone!! I am happy it is Friday, but it also means another week gone until Christmas! This year though it is not as bad as usual. I actually have all of my shopping done, and almost everything wrapped. The kids are going to all be out of town so I am not even having to stress over planning a menu. WOW I don’t know what to do with myself!! That is where this blog post came from, looking for something to do. Seriously I have really wanted to do the homemade seasonings for a while. I make my own taco seasoning, I have just never written it down or taken pictures of it. So when I decided to make a dish that included my Italian dressing I grabbed my camera real quick so I wouldn’t forget.
I am in no way saying that using the packaged version is bad. It is all a matter of preference. I just like the challenge of making it my own way. Plus if you make it yourself, you can always change things up to suit your tastes.
Homemade Italian Salad Dressing
makes 1 cup of mix
2 tablespoons dried Oregano
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
To make the salad dressing combine 2 tablespoons of the dry mix with 2/3 cup olive oil, 1/4 white vinegar, and 2 tablespoons water. Shake to combine and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes before using.
