Well, I really need to buy a better camera (someday). My apologies for not offering any pictures with this blog post but I think we all know what Italian Salad Dressing looks like. In a previous blog post titled Magnificent Gluten Free Spaghetti Dinner – Magnifica Cena Spaghetti Senza Glutine I promised to post my homemade recipe for My Italian Salad Dressing Mix. We all know that an Italian dinner is never complete without garlic bread and a tasty salad. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!
Nanna’s Italian Salad Dressing Mix
I use organic ingredients as I grow and dehydrate most of them myself, however if being organic is not of high importance to you regular off the shelf ingredients will do.. Keep this dry mix in an air tight container. Use to make Italian salad dressing as needed.
