Italian Salad Dressing Mix

In my quest to make my own salad dressings, Italian is next on my list. Italian is my husbands favorite salad dressing. Well, not counting the ketchup and Miracle Whip salad dressing he grew up on and still likes to make. The kids won’t eat it, though. lol

I decided I wanted to start with a mix, so I could whip up the salad dressing quickly and easily when I need it. Here’s what I came  up with:

Italian Salad Dressing Mix
Recipe type: Condiment
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 2 Tablespoons Oregano, fresh or dried
  • 1 Teaspoon Basil, fresh or dried
  • ¼ Teaspoon Thyme, fresh or dried
  • ½ Teaspoon dried Celery leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon Onion powder
  • 1½ Teaspoons Garlic powder
  • 2 Tablespoons salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  1. Place all ingredients in an air tight container. I use a canning jar. Shake or stir.
  2. To make Salad Dressing:
  3. In a jar, I use a canning jar, place
  4. - 2 Tablespoons Water
  5. - 2 Tablespoons Italian Salad Dressing Mix
  6. - ¼ cup vinegar
  7. - ½ cup Light Olive Oil
  8. Shake well before serving. It separates quickly, so shake often while serving. I make in a canning jar, so it's easy to shake during the meal.
If you want a freshier, chunkier Italian Salad Dressing, use fresh herbs, onions, garlic and celery. Use your favorite vinegar and oil. I use about half apple cider vinegar and half white vinegar.


This mix makes it very convenient to make your own Italian Salad Dressing. My whole family loves this salad dressing. Even the kids! lol

  2. Linda, I like the idea of making the mix so that nothing slows you down when it’s time to whip up a batch for dinner. And in summer, using the same flavor combo but subbing in fresh herbs sounds divine! Thanks for linking this to Food on Fridays! I’m so glad you joined us this week!
