Italian Herb Dressing

When I asked you awhile back about what kind of healthy dressing recipes you would like to see, a popular answer was Italian herb dressing.  I had already created a Balsamic Vinaigrette.  So I created an Italian herb dressing for you.

This healthy salad dressing is super easy to make as well.  I used dried herbs, because that is what I had on hand.  Feel free to use fresh ones as well.  This dressing would make a great marinade as well.  I am thinking of marinating some vegetable kabobs in this and then grilling them.  Yum!

Italian Herb Dressing

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp honey or maple syrup (I used honey)
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  • Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl.
  • Mix all the dry in another. 
  • Add wet to dry and whisk until combined.

Another way you can mix is to throw everything in a covered container and shake well. Keep in mind that since this is a homemade dressing, the oil will try to solidify in the fridge. If you plan on using the dressing, just pull it out a few minutes before you need it and then shake well before using. I got close to 1 cup of dressing. It should last in the fridge a couple weeks. Enjoy!

  1. Is there anything else I could use in place of white wine vinegar? I have ACV & plain white vinegar, would either of those work?

    1. You can try plain white vinegar. It may taste slightly different though. I would love to know the results!

  2. I am eating a salad with your dressing right now. It is very good. I would like to share it on my blog giving you full credit of course. Would that be okay with you? Your girls are beautiful and you take such good care of them. What a journey you are on. I admire that you are sharing what you know and helping others.
