Italian Dressing Mix

Italian Dressing Mix

1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon dried parsley leaves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried sweet basil leaves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon ground thyme or marjoram
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1-1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 pinch black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk or a fork until fully incorporated. Place in the center of a square piece of aluminum foil. Fold the foil into a small envelope to create an airtight packet and label. Store in a cool, dry place. Use within six months.

Yield: 1 package (4 tablespoons).

To Use:
1 package (4 tablespoons) Italian dressing mix
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup vegetable oil

Put all ingredients into a bowl, cruet or pint jar and stir or shake until well blended. Cover and refrigerate approximately 30 minutes before serving. Yield: about 1 cup of dressing. Tip: This recipe multiplies well. Mix all of the ingredients very well and then measure out 4 tablespoons of the mix for each of your individual packets.
