      Nice spice mix. I made it as directed and made the dressing with it. The dressing was very herby...not quite Italian tasting to me. I'm going to try the spice mix on chicken like you suggested and see if I like it better that way. Freddy Cat says hi! Made in honor of Sharon's husband via

      I am not a fan of pre-bottled salad dressings. The ingredients alone on the bottle will tell you why. As a result, I really like to make my own from scratch. Italian dressing has to be one of my favorites, so I was really pleased to try this one. I will say, I like this dressing mix more after it sat for a couple hours or so. I used the dressing on some greens right after I mixed it up, and the dried spices were still a little "dried". I might cut back a tad on the oregano next time. I also think I will add a bit more vinegar, as another reviewer suggested, I like it really tangy. I have been using this dressing on my salad all week, with a little bit of nutritional yeast sprinkled over the top as well.

      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).
