  1. Hello there, thank you so much for sharing this. this is a very awesome piece and a very detailed one. I’m really happy I came across this.  Reading about this article Italian salad dressing mix sounds really exciting. Well I don’t know how to dress a salad in Italian way but this article was an eye opener. Reading about was indeed helpful 

    1. This salad dressing mix can be mixed with vinegar and oil to pour over salads or use as a marinade.  It can also be used in its powdered form as a seasoning.  Thank you for your comments!

  2. I have seen so many meals that I want to try and this is one that I really feel there would be so much fun when I try it out. However, it’s really good that the recipes are readily available for everyone and there would be easily accessible for everyone who will be willing to try it out. I love so many Italian meals and this would be nice to give a try as well. 

  3. Your recipe looks delicious! Italian is one of my favorite dressings and having a recipe that I can keep on hand to use when I am ready would be such a convenience!

    Do you keep it mixed in the serving container or can you mix a larger batch and use a portion at a time? With our large family of vegetarians, the batch approach would work much better.

    I took a few minutes to browse your other recipes, too. I’ll be trying the curry barley very soon!

    1. Thank you for your comments! 

      This mix can be put together in larger batches and stored in its powder form with the rest of your spices.  Then it’s easy to mix the amount of dressing you need for a meal or use the powder to season dishes!  Please let me know how you decided to use this.

      I hope you enjoy the curry barley.

  4. Homemade Italian salad dressing is one of my favorites. Sometimes I experiment with a different combination of herbs and ingredients, next time I will try to do this Italian dressing exactly according to your instructions.
    Thanks for your recipe. We eat a lot of different salads, so I often have the opportunity to try different salad dressings.
    Friendly greeting,

  5. Mamma mia! This salad dressing reminds me of my mom. A question I get asked all the time when I prepare this Italian salad dressing is if they can use Italian dressing instead of Italian seasoning? And the short answer is no.

    Have you tried lemon pepper in your Italian salad dressing mix? It gives a unique touch.

    1. No, I have not tried it but it sounds fabulous!  Do you add just lemon juice and black pepper?  What are the proportions?  I can’t wait to try it!

  6. Thanks for yet another interesting edition of your Sausage and fried cabbage recipe, Cynthia! One thing that baffles me is how the USDA should permit food processors to inject harmful chemicals into foods in order to prolong the expiration of the food and make it taste good when it reaches the final consumer. And that’s why I don’t cherish processed foods but prefer my own ultra-processed foods. Thanks for your good job

    1. I don’t how all these political decisions are made, I just know they are and it’s up to each and every one of us to protect ourselves from the deceptive and dangerous practices of food manufacturers.  The only way to change things is to stop buying these products!
