  • 4 tablespoons 60 ml red wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Italian Seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons 3 tablespoons dried basil
  • 3 tablespoons 3 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons 3 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon dried thyme

Instructions

Instructions are for 10 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Pour all ingredients in a beaker with a lid, or a dressing bottle with a large opening.
  2. Shake vigorously and let sit for 30 minutes or longer to let the flavors develop.
  3. Keep in the refrigerator up to 7 days.

Italian seasoning

  1. Mix together the spices well and pour into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. Remember that spices should be kept in a dark, dry, cool place, so consider using small tin containers for storage.
  3. Make a batch that you will use up in about six months. Thereafter, the spices will lose some of their bite, flavor and color. (But they will still be safe to eat.)

Tip!

Add a smaller amount of vinegar if you like your dressing less sour. For a creamier vinaigrette, add some mayo or sour cream.

    Why this recipe is calling for light olive oil? Can I just use extra virgin olive oil instead?

    Celine, you can use regular evoo. They probably recommended light because it has less flavor so that the other ingredients shine.
