Italian Dressing Mix

I've enjoyed looking for recipes that allow me to make my own mixes at home because it saves money and time...and I know what ingredients are in it.  In an attempt to come up with a different salad dressing other than just oil and vinegar, I found this Italian dressing mix.  I always have the ingredients on hand, and it's quick and easy to throw together.  We've found that it tastes so much better than any Italian dressing you can buy.  Yes, we love it that much!  And it can be used as an incredible marinade for chicken and pork chops, or as a dipping sauce for bread.  Versatile is good!

The Dry Mix:
2 Tablespoons dried oregano
1 Tablespoon dried parsley1 Tablespoon garlic salt
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon salt (I use Kosher)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper (I fresh grind it)
1 teaspoon dried basil
¼ teaspoon dried thyme¼ teaspoon celery salt

In a small bowl, mix together all of the above ingredients. Store in a tightly sealed container.

To Make Dressing:
Whisk together 1/4 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup canola oil, 2 tablespoons water and 2 tablespoons of the dry mix.
