    Dried things usually have a stronger flavor so you may need to use a bit less. Just play around with it and see what works for your tastes! Hope it helps!

  2. Hi Jessica, great recipe! Exactly what I was looking for – a simple Italian dressing that is also Paleo compliant.

    One question, have you tried Onion and/or Garlic powder instead of minced Garlic and Onion? I was wondering if the measurements would be the same? I don’t have any fresh onion or garlic on hand :)

    Thanks!
    Tim
