Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

      Forget about the store-bought envelopes of ranch seasoning mix...make your own!  You can make it with real ingredients so you know exactly what is going into it.   It is super handy to keep in your pantry and it also makes the best tasting ranch dressing for your salad too!  It is perfect as a dressing, dip, or just add some extra flavor to your favorite recipes and meals!

         I love making things from scratch like my version of shake 'n bake, fajita seasoning and even an au jus mix.    Making your own mixes and spice blends not only saves you money but it is healthier for you and your family.

Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

 2 T. powdered buttermilk
2 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. dried chopped onion  
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. chives (optional)
1/4 tsp. dill weed
1/4 tsp. salt
pinch of black pepper

    Put all the ingredients together into a bowl.

        Stir well.

    Pour into a baggie or jar until you are ready to use. 
    Makes 1 serving that is equal to one store bought envelope.

     To make into salad dressing:  Add in the mix, 1 cup of mayonnaise, and 1 1/3 c. buttermilk (or sour cream).  Stir well and refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving.


     To make into dip:  Add in the mix and 2 cups of sour cream.  Mix well and then refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving.  Goes great with vegetables or crackers.  

     To make a large batch, which equals to 10 envelopes of store-bought mix, combine the following:

1 1/4 c. powdered buttermilk
1/2 c. dried parsley
1/4 c. onion powder
1 1/2 T. garlic powder
1 1/2 T. chives (optional)
2 1/2 tsp. dill weed
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

     One envelope is equal to 5 tablespoons of my mix.  This can be stored up to 6 months.  
    Some of my other salad dressings that I make include: Oil and Vinegar dressing, Italian Dressing, and Catalina Dressing.  
    Make it into dressing and use it to dip our Easy Pizza Quesadillas into.
