Salad Dressing Mix, dry

Dry salad dressing mixes are a common convenience food available at most any grocery store.   Most contain an array of dried herbs, spices, sugar or other flavorings. Some may contain dehydrated cheese.  These products typically contain a very high amount of salt so people with salt-restricted diets should read labels carefully.

Common varieties include Ranch and Italian.  There are special sugar-free and low-sodium varieties as well.

You can make your own mixes at home as well, see recipe links.
