Pros:Inexpensive, bursting with flavor, definite spice & dried veggies. Italian for sure !
Cons:Too much sodium
The Bottom Line: If you want the perfect combination in one packet of ITALIAN flavor for real cheap, then get this. You can use it in everything, almost. It could use less sodium.
How many times have you added way too much oregano, too little basil or even forgot the tarragon ? Your salad screaming from drowning in blah and your mate ready to incinerate your “I excelled in cooking, a C.O.C from a Cracker Jack Box”. You need help. It is okay to turn to dried prepared seasoning mixes for everything to taste better.

I see nothing exacerbating an allergic reaction; although too much citric acid could encourage GURD.

The pouches are white with green writing on them; the box of Kraft Good Seasons Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix, Italian 0.7 oz Packets is thin paperboard.

I see no problems here and it is energy-raising.

For 4 pouches in 1 box, it cost me $2.30; while 24 is nearly $7.oo

|| POSITIVES ||
Oh yum indeed as the product is bursting with the dried vegetables and it is mixed perfectly. When prepared with just a tad bit of pure virgin olive oil, classic Italian flavor bursts through.
|| SMELL ||
I see myself going through an herb and vegetable garden when you rip open a pouch.
|| TASTE ||
When dabbed to tongue dry, Kraft Good Seasons Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix, Italian 0.7 oz Packets tastes sweet, spicy and good; when prepared, AWESOME.
|| USES ||
I stir it into meat casseroles, tuna, egg salad, soups, stews, and of course celebrate my raddichio, radishes, Golden Roma tomatoes, Walnut pieces, & avocado wedges with a splash of this.
|| VERDICT (my) ||
I find it essential to have a box of Kraft Good Seasons Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix, Italian 0.7 oz Packets handy because it is so versatile. The tart and tangy sweet and savory just if mixed by yourself individually, does not always come out right. Use this and salads are celebrated not just drowned . . .
Thank you for reading and Enjoy !
