      YUM! Thanks for posting this one, Sharon! I mixed some up and used it to make the dressing as you suggested. I added extra vinegar, as that's how I always make mine. I love that you can control the salt and sugar in this recipe (I used Splenda).

      Excellent spice blend that made a wonderful light tasting Italian dressing with the perfect blend of spices. I made this up today to use on my salads at work this coming week. Instead of the EVOO I used Canola Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Blend that had Omega-3 DHA added which worked so well with this recipe and made it a little healthier for me. I used Splenda as a sub for the sugar to lower the calories a little more. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PRMR :)

      I have been making this for a couple of years now and was sure I had rated it. Oh well, I am doing it now. Today is about the 7th time I have made the blend and I wouldn't want to be without it in my cupboard! I use it for every recipe where Italian seasoning is called for, I add it to my own spaghetti sauce, dry rub chicken and pork chops with it and now and then use it for salad dressing. Thanks so much for sharing this gem!
