Italian Dressing

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

As readers are getting ready to begin their Real Food Challenge, I have been receiving a few questions. I was recently asked what types of salad dressing could be eaten while working through the 10 Day Real Food Challenge. Unfortunately, the honest answer is that I have never seen any at the grocery store, which means you are left to make your own.

Today I will share a tasty Italian Dressing I make from time to time and provide some links for a few additional dressing options that might suit your taste.

What you’ll need:

1 T. garlic salt

2 T. dried orgeano

1 1/2 t. black pepper

1/4 t. dried thyme

1 t. dried basil

1 T. dried parsley

1/4 t. celery salt

2 T. salt

1/4 cup distilled white vinegar

2/3 cup olive oil

2 T. water

The process:

Combine the spices in a small airtight jar. In a larger jar, combine 2 T. spice mix with the vinegar, oil, and water. Secure the lid on top and shake vigorously until combined. If you would like to add a little sweetness to this, add one drop of honey (or more to taste) before shaking. This mix does not need to be refrigerated. (The olive oil will solidify if you choose to store it in a cool place.) Save the remaining spice mix for additional dressings.

Results: I love this dressing because it adds more flavor than the standard vinegar and oil dressing mix. Using a jar makes it quick and easy to put together and it is so tasty!

If you are looking for additional dressings to try, test out these recipes: Onion Salad Dressing, Oil and Vinegar Dressing, and Tarragon Dijon Mustard.
