Homemade Italian Dressing Mix

I rarely buy the soup packets at the grocery store because I always keep a variety of spices on hand in my pantry. I’m always on the look out for ways to make mixes from scratch. So when I came across this homemade dressing mix on A Few Short Cuts, I was looking forward to testing the mix on Wednesday night’s dinner–Spinach Sausage Soup.  This is another great Homemade Mix I use in a variety of dishes or as a dressing for our weekly salads.
