How to Make Paleo-Friendly Italian Seasoning
When making this spice blend, toss the dried herbs gently to avoid crushing them. When using the spice blend to cook, crush the spice blend between your fingers to release the leaves’ flavor. Use the Italian Seasoning to make a quick salad dressing with extra-virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar, or sprinkle onto steamed vegetables tossed with coconut or olive oil and a freshly crushed garlic clove.
