Home On The Ranch – Dressing Mix

1067957Who doesn’t love Ranch Dressing? Whether used as a salad dressing or as a dip for chips or veggies, Ranch Dressing is arguably America’s favorite*.   And the mix you use to make the dressing or dip is easy to make at home 🙂  With a few simple ingredients you can make the mix that can be transformed into salad dressing or dip in moments.

Once you’ve tried this we think it will be a staple in your kitchen that makes an appearance on your table on a regular basis.  Bon Appetite!





Homemade Ranch Mix

1/3 cup buttermilk powder (dry buttermilk)
2 teaspoons dill weed
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried chives
1 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  You can also mix in a food processor to get a finer consistency.  (We prefer to use the food processor but only pulse the mixture lightly).

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

Three tablespoons of the mixture equals one packet of store bought dressing mix.  To make dressing add 1 tablespoon to 1/3 cup milk and 1/3 cup mayonnaise and stir well or whisk to combine. Happy eating 🙂

* Not only is this America’s favorite, it is definitely one of my sweet husband, Randy’s favorites.  Randy happens to be celebrating his birthday today.  Happy birthday honey!!!! It is also my darling son-in-law, Pete’s birthday and, as if that wasn’t enough, our dear friend, John, who is also our son-in-law, Joe’s, dad.  This is a big day in our family!  Happy birthday.

      Hi Debi:
      The answer is no water is added. Rather as we mentioned in the post, you add milk and mayonnaise. Let us know what you think should you decide to try it 🙂
