This homemade Italian Salad Dressing mix is my secret weapon. I use it in everything from actual Italian Salad Dressing, to dips, soups, pasta salads and anything else I think could use a little zip!
I have been making it for a few years now and love how convenient it is to keep on hand. It is easy peasy to mix up and can be stored for months in a Ziploc bag or air tight container.
This is my go to dressing when I make Pasta Salad. My good friend Toni let me in on a little secret that Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar instead of white or red in Italian Salad dressing is the bomb. I haven’t made it any other way since. You’ve got to try it.

I store the dry mix in a small Ziploc in my spice drawer. I put a piece of masking tape with dressing recipe on it so I don’t have to try and remember the proper amounts every time I make it.
My favorite type of vinegar to use when making the dressing is seasoned rice wine vinegar. It is so good. My friend Toni who is Italian told me to use it, and I have never looked back!
