Homemade Italian Dressing

I recently made a recipe that required Italian dressing. A quick scan of the pantry and fridge turned out to be pointless.

No italian dressing!

I called a friend for her recipe hoping I had all the spices needed. She gave me her homemade Italian dressing recipe and I scanned my spice cabinet as she read off the list of ingredients.


I had everything I needed.

This dressing is TASTY! It tastes even better after it’s had some time in the fridge.

NOTE: It’s a teensy bit salty. I like that, but you might not. Use a bit less salt if you aren’t a fan of salty stuff!

Homemade Italian Dressing


  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt


Mix all the ingredients together and shake it up in an airtight container.

To make the dressing, pour 1/4 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup olive oil and 2 tablespoons of water together in a container. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of your mix. Store in the fridge.

My friend uses canola oil for her Italian Dressing, but I prefer cold pressed olive oil.

    Wow! I also happen to have all these spices in my pantry, so I will definitely try this to dress a salad or in a chicken skillet recipe. Do you know how long can I keep it without it going bad? Does it last like a bought dressing, because of the vinegar?
