Really simple Menu Idea Monday Today: Italian Dressing Seasoning Mix.
This is one of those things that tends to show up in other recipes, but that I refuse to buy because the packets from the store are full of chemical preservatives and other crap that I don't want in my body. At the same time, it's hard to know what to substitute to approximate the flavor - so here you go!
Stick this in your cookbook/ recipe binder and make up a little jar once in a while so it's on hand when you want it. Keep the chemicals and cross contaminants out of your life, and get fresher, richer flavor to boot! Enjoy.
