Italian Seasoning and Salad Dressing

Here's a little quickie that I like to always have on hand. It's a dry Italian seasoning mix. Use it as a dry rub... mix it with oil and vinegar to make a salad dressing.... sprinkle it in your food... whatever.
It's cheaper (and healthier) to make than it is to buy those individual packets, and it tastes much better.
1 TBS garlic powder
1 TBS  onion powder
2 TBS oregano
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1 TBS parsley
1/4 tsp celery seed
1 tsp sea salt
Shake, stir, or otherwise mix together.
Store in a plastic or glass container.
It makes about 6TBS, I usually make it 4 batches at a time, and it lasts forever.
To make it into a nice salad dressing:
1/4 cup vinegar of your choice
2/3 cup olive oil (extra virgin of course!)
2 TBS of the dry mix
Combine and chill for at least 30 minutes before using.
