Italian Dressing Mix

We love Italian salad dressing. It is the salad dressing we use the most unless you count ranch being used on things other than salad, like pizza or fried zucchini.

Sometimes, it is hard to keep Good Seasons Zesty Italian salad dressing mix on hand, but we have created a pretty decent substitute with only ingredients we already have in our spice cabinet.
