LPF Cooks: DIY Italian Seasoning

Ever since my bestie Jocey taught us how to DIY salad dressing recipes in LPF Mag Issue #3,  I literally can't bring myself to buy them anymore! They just taste so much fresher & are more affordable when you make them yourself using herbs & oils you already have on hand. Plus, I really like knowing what's going into it and being able to control the amount of salt/sugar/oil in my dressings!

I found a great recipe to a DIY Italian Seasoning & adjusted it to my liking -it can be used to season meat or even made into a salad dressing using vinegar + oil!

To make your seasoning into a  DIY Italian Dressing for salads combine:
 1/2 cup of canola or olive oil
2 tbsp of water 
1/2 cup of white wine vinegar 
 2 tablespoons of your Italian seasoning 
& mix well!

Do you make any of your own salad dressings or condiments that most people would buy from the grocery store? I'm really loving the idea of less preservatives & simple but delicious DIY's!

Salad dressings are so expensive in Madrid. I can't bring myself to splurge on it when I know my euros can be spent on much better things, so I have just been sticking to olive oil and balsamic dressing. I will definitely need to try this out! Thanks for posting. :) xx Jen
