Homemade Italian salad dressing is one of those empowering recipes. Make it yourself and save all the money!
It's one the first things I learned how to make as a new bride, which means it's super simple. I've had the decanter in the photo for a long, long time.
It has dummy-proof markings on it:
"V" for vinegar. "W" for water. And "O" for oil.
Next you are supposed to dump in a little packet of spices. An OVERPRICED little packet of spices.
I still follow the handy markings on the container, but now I use my own spices.
Here's the recipe:
Italian Salad Dressing
1/4 cup vinegar
1/8 cup water
1/2 cup plus 1/8 cup vegetable oil
1/4 Tablespoon garlic powder
1/4 Tablespoon onion powder
1/2 Tablespoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon basil
1/2 Tablespoon parsley
1/2 Tablespoon sugar (to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Put ingredients in a container with an air-tight lid and shake vigorously.
Have a lovely day!
