If you know anything about my food preferences, you’d know I love salads.
When I say love, I mean I could eat salads every day all day.
(In fact, I do eat a huge salad pretty much daily)
One of my favorite things to do to my salads is to dress them up DIY style.
This means I love using my own dressing, spices, and homemade vinegar to elevate my bowl of vegetables.
Perhaps one of my favorite and most commonly used spice blends is my Italian spice blend.
This spice blend with makes your salad go from being bland and boring to delicious and fun. Take it from me – a girl who never used to eat salads back in the day.
Now I know what you must be thinking – why make a spice blend when you could just buy it pre-made, and you have a vaild point.
However, making your own spice blends not only allow you to customize the spice ratios to your preferences but it also is more budget friendly!
Trust me, you’ll want to make yourself a batch of this!
