From www.TopSecretRecipes.com This is a favorite with Italian-style grub.The recipe comes from Carrabba's Restaurant. They serve the spices on a small plate and the waiter adds olive oil, then you are set to dip your bread. YUM YUM! TIP: Chop all spices in small chopper and store them in a small container in the refrigerator, since a little goes a long way -- that way you can have it anytime.
Save money on groceries. When added to vinegar, water, and oil, you get one of the best-tasting homemade instant salad dressings. The dry pectin can be found near the canning supplies in your supermarket. Source: www.TopSecretRecipes.com
I make this out-of-this-world tasting homemade nut mixture every Christmas season... no matter how much I make, they never last long, I'll be lucky if they even make it to the table.... so my advice to you, is make lots and lots, then hide some for your guests.
I use this all-purpose balanced seasoning blend EVERY day! It's great on chicken, pork, beef, soups, stews, pasta salads, and just about any vegetable you can think of, especially fresh tomatoes and potatoes. I always double or triple the recipe, and keep it in a shaker by my stove. It can be made with or without the salt-substitute or salt, and still impart a delicious flavor.
This is one of several "spice mixes" that I've used for years. I call it "vegetable blend" because I like the flavor it gives to steamed veggies. Its also a nice change from my usual dressing for potato salad.
This is a copycat recipe for Schilling Salad Supreme. Use the entire recipe if making Mysterygirl's Linguini Salad in place of the 1/2 a jar that is called for in the recipe. It would be good mixed with italian dressing on vegetables too.
