Italian Dressing Mix

Last week I wanted to make Italian beef hoagies in my slow cooker. I had planned on it all week and I knew I needed to go to the store to buy Italian dressing mix for it, but for whatever reason, I spaced going to the store. I remembered when it was time to put the roast in the slow cooker. In case you haven't noticed, I hate running to town for just one or two things. It's such a hassle. I avoid it if possible. I figured if I could make my own taco seasoning, I could probably make my own Italian dressing mix, so I started searching the Internet. I found a few recipes that had odd ingredients I didn't have. Finally, I found this one. It called for celery salt, which I didn't have, but I did have Bon Appetit, which I think is similar, so I used it. I haven't actually made salad dressing out of this yet, but it worked fantastically for my Italian beef hoagies.

Italian Dressing Mix

1 Tbs. garlic salt
1 Tbs. onion powder
1 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. oregano
1 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. basil
1 Tbs. parsley
1/4 tsp. celery salt (I used Bon Appetit)
2 Tbs. salt (I used sea salt)

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. 2 Tbs. mix equals 1 packet of Italian dressing mix. To make dressing, mix 1/4 c. vinegar (the original recipe says cider vinegar, but I think I'd use red wine vinegar), 2/3 c. oil (I think I'd use olive oil), 2 Tbs. water, and 2 Tbs. dry mix.
