Homemade Italian Seasoning Blend + Italian Dressing Recipe

Homemade Italian Seasoning

I just realised that when I posted my Oscar themed recipe for Alabama Firecrackers that I just stated “Italian seasoning’ in the recipe but no other elaboration. Maybe you already have either a store bought or homemade Italian seasoning blend in your spice rack, but just in case you happen not to, here is my simple recipe.

The nice thing about making your own is the customability. Is that a word? Google is giving me the squiggly red line but I choose to ignore it. Customability is the biggest advantage to the home cook. Someone doesn’t like onions, no onion powder. Hate oregano? Leave it out! See where I’m going with this? ๐Ÿ˜‰

This Homemade Italian Seasoning Blend is nice to add to soups or stews, in a marinade, sprinkle on chicken or fish before roasting, you could make the aforementioned crackers as well.

Another cool thing is to use it as a base for a killer salad dressing. Just add some oil of your choice (customability again!), a little vinegar and some fresh lemon and you are off to the races with a delicious Italian inspired salad.

Another tip I picked up was to buy my dried spices in the bulk section. You can purchase exactly what you need in the amount you desire. If you only need a pinch of something that you know you probably won’t use on a regular basis, just buy the pinch. Your spices should stay fresher also because you will be buying smaller amounts and replenishing them more frequently. I think this entire recipe would cost under $3. For real!

Enjoy this blend and your weekend! Happy Friday, everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I really need to start buying my herbs and spices from the bulk section so that I can buy only what I need. I always buy the bags of them, which is way too much for some herbs/spices. I mean, I go through cinnamon super fast, but I rarely use others like tumeric. I think I’ve had my tumeric for like 3-4 years and I’m still not done it. I know spices and herbs lose their potency and nutrients over time… but I refuse to throw it out lol.

    1. I used to do the same! Now I’ve invested in glass jars and only pick up what I’ll need at the bulk section. My cinnamon jar is HUGE. ๐Ÿ˜‰
