DIY Italian Dressing

Italian dressing

Glub, glub, glub . . .

It’s this sound which reminds me of store bought Italian dressing. Tilting the bottle of store bought Italian dressing is like playing with one of those oil and water toys . .  not appealing. Some brands are worse than others, but I just prefer to make my own. No additives or preservatives, and hey, I already have the ingredients on hand.

I also don’t like the flavor of store bought dressings. It’s this fake or almost burned garlic taste, and it’s overly oily. I pretty much hate it. I make all my own dressings, and my two favorites are lemon garlic and balsamic dressings.

I also make an Italian dressing which is fresh and delicious. I concocted a dry mix base, using things you probably have in your cupboard. It takes just literally a couple minutes to make, and you don’t have to spend almost $3 on a bottle of yucky, store bought dressing which reminds you of something your kids would beg you for in a souvenir store.

DIY Italian Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt

Mix all ingredient s in a jar. Combine 1/4 white vinegar, 2/3 cups olive oil, and 1 tablespoon of water. Add two tablespoons of Italian dressing mix to liquid mixture and shake in a covered jelly jar.
