Italian Salad Dressing

I ran out of Italian dressing and I needed it to make dinner. So what did I do? I made my own of course. This was so easy that I might not ever buy Italian dressing again! If you want to substitute olive oil in you can, but it will taste heavier. This makes a lot, so feel free to pare it down.

Recipe Yield 0.5 cup dry mix


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


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic salt, onion powder, sugar, oregano, pepper, thyme, basil, parsley, celery salt and regular salt. Store in a tightly sealed container.
  2. To prepare dressing, whisk together 1/4 white vinegar, 2/3 cup canola oil, 2 tablespoons water and 2 tablespoons of the dry mix.
