Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix
by

I love ranch dressing. I don't normally buy the dry mix, but recently I tried this ranch potato recipe, so I have been finding myself buying a lot of ranch dressing mix!

ranch dressing mixI have been making a lot of my own homemade mixes, so I decided to try making ranch dressing mix. It turns out it is really easy, and very good too. You can find many recipes for ranch dressing, but this recipe that includes dry buttermilk powder seems to come closest to the original Hidden Valley Ranch.

1 cup powdered buttermilk
6 tablespoons dried parsley
2 tablespoons dried dill weed
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper

Mix all ingredients together. It will fit perfectly in a pint sized canning jar. If you want you can run all the ingredients through your food processor to mix it really well, but I didn't.

One tablespoon of mix is equal to one packet of dressing mix, so you really are saving money by making your own mix. To make ranch salad dressing, combine 1 tablespoon mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1/2 cup milk. Mix together with a wire whisk. You can also substitute sour cream or yogurt for the mayonnaise.

To make ranch dip, mix one tablespoon mix with one cup mayonnaise and one cup sour cream.
