    Thank you so much for this recipe, I used my dehydrator to dry a bunch of peppers, carrots, onions and other vegetables from our small garden and now have 20 or so of these mixes made up. The flavor is Exact!! I don't know how you do it, but please dont stop. Thank you

    Pectin acts as a thickener.

    Balsamic vinegar makes an AWESOME dressing. I made some Italian using balsamic and my family wont eat anything else on their salad but the homemade one. They eat it on bread, crackers everything!

    I wonder if there would be any way to use unflavored gelatin as the thickener instead of pectin? I have gelatin lounging around in my cupboard, but used all my pectin in my jellies. Any thoughts?

    UPDATE!!
    Hello fellow Thrift Warriors! This morning I experimented with the gelatin. Guess what? It worked! Here's what I did...

    Dissolve 1 1/2 tsp. unflavored Gelatin in 2 Tbs. Hot water. Stir until dissolved. Add to salad dressing with vinegar and water. Continue as directed. Refrigerate about an hour to blend.

    Notes: Next time I will try 1 tsp. of gelatin. This was a little too thick for my taste. Do add the gelatin while it's still warm and liquid. I left mine on the counter while measuring everything else and came back to a solid block of gelatin! (Microwaving for 15 seconds or so liquified it again.)

    My husband is raving about this dressing, and I love it too! I have lots of dehydrated vegetables that reconstitute easily in it, so it always tastes fresh and healthy. I'm using cider vinegar which we both prefer as it has so much more flavor, but one day soon I will also try balsamic. I am making up the dry mix in bulk now as it has become our daily salad dressing! Thank you so much for this wonderful addition to our table. I think I will definitely try the gelatin in lieu of the pectin as the pectin is rather pricey for this. Thank you for this; it is so much better than bottled dressing!

    Oh, I must add that it is excellent when made with Splenda instead of sugar, if it is to be used by a diabetic.

    I was searching for a homemade good seasons recipe and came across this website and the recipe. Good Seasons is the only dressing my son likes and as others have noted it is quite expensive. Looking forward to trying the recipe and the website.
