The Food Factor: Italian Dressing Mix
Making your own mixes is a favorite topic here on The Food Factor. We’ve shared recipes for Ranch Dressing Mix, Taco Seasoning Mix, and Magic Meat Mixes. Today we’ve got a recipe for Italian Dressing Mix!
True confession: I don’t usually make this dressing mix for salads. I put it in the slow cooker with roast beef, onions, and peppers for a delicious alternative to traditional pot roast.
Like all recipes, I recommend you adjust this to suit your tastes. Less sugar will make your dressing less sweet. More pepper, or adding cayenne pepper, will amp up the spiciness. Be sure to label the jar and use within the recommended time, about 3 months.

1 Tbsp. onion powder
