Everybody I give LindaSue's recipe to loves it. It's very natural and I second it.

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. kosher salt (less if regular)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder

Combine all and mix well. Chill. Makes 2 cups, or 16 two tbls. servings.

This is the Barefoot Contessa's - I just made it last week and it's really, really good. I added extra basil and it's almost like a green goddess.
