Homemade Italian Salad Dressing!

This is a simple recipe to make your own homemade Italian salad dressing that is also Paleo.  It is a fresh and preservative free take on the same bottle versions you may buy at the store and also works as a great marinade.

You Need:
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon raw honey
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 cup vinegar (white, red wine, or balsamic)
2/3 cup olive oil

I like to use a hand mixer to emulsify it all together. You can also use a blender or just combine everything in a bottle and shake it up.  If you can, allow it to sit so the dried herbs soften.  Then just store on the counter. (olive oil will solidify in the refrigerator)


  1. looks yummy! I am on week one of a three week sugar detox. No wheat, no dairy, no meat, no sugar... we have been eating lots of Paleo friendly meals in the Miller household.

  2. Wow that sounds like an undertaking! Good luck!
