Italian sub dressing on a spoon

Italian Sub Dressing

This tart and herby dressing will elevate your cold cuts to another level!


  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Vinegar, white or other type of vinegar
  • 1 tsp Oregano, dried
  • 1 tsp Basil, dried
  • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsg Xanthan gum optional


  • Mix vinegar with herbs and garlic and let sit for 15 min to rehydrate
  • Add xanthan gum (if using) to the olive oil.
  • Combine olive oil with vinegar mixture in a jar and shake well to combine.


The herbs are really just a suggestion. You can use any combination of rosemary, thyme, basil, oregano and other dried herbs. Keep the total amount of dried herbs to about 2 tsp. A super easy option is to use pre-mixed Italian Herbs seasoning.
I usually use white vinegar, but you can use any type of vinegar, including balsamic or wine vinegar. You can even use a combination of different vinegars. Just keep the total amount to 1/4 cup.
I didn't add any salt to this since everything else on an Italian Sub is quite salty. If you use this for anything else, like as an actual salad dressing, you'll want to salt to taste.
If you're not using xanthan gum the oil and vinegar will separate after a while. Just shake before using.
