if its just been happening lately it coulde be fuel, or the car might need a service if it hasnt had one lately(sparkplugs, ignition leads).
but my moneys on the throttlebody, remove the air intake give it a clean with some carby cleaner. and possible even reset the ecu.

this happens to my misses EL wagon, i ran a diagnostic on the car an found that one of the radiator thermo fans are faulty, and every time the fans kicks in the idle drops ... could be the same thing with yours... just something to look into..
