This is my experimentation of "Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix" that suites my taste! I tried several on the web but to me they were missing something? I think it was the lemon pepper everyone was using? I bought citric acid which is used in Good Seasons...you can find in the canning section along with dry pectin(it is used in place of xanthum gum) which is used as a thickening agent but not necessary ! I hope everyone likes this version?
