Who else loves ranch seasoning? I think that most people do.

It’s so tasty and so easy to make, and I love having it for those recipes that call for ranch seasoning. Buying a packet of seasoning mix for a teaspoon of seasoning always seems a little annoying to me, so this makes me much happier.

And homemade is always better anyways!

What is ranch dressing made of?

Ranch seasoning is made up of buttermilk powder, parsley, dill, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, dried onion, and pepper. You probably already have most of those ingredients so it’s pretty simple to make.

To make ranch dressing, mix 1 tablespoon of this ranch seasoning mix with 1/3 of milk and 1/3 cup of mayonnaise. It tastes best if you refrigerate it for an hour before serving for the flavours to meld, but you can use it right away too. You can thin it with more milk to whatever your desired consistency is.

To make ranch dip, use 1 tablespoon of this ranch seasoning mix with 1/3 cup of sour cream and 1/3 cup of mayonnaise. It’s best if you refrigerate it for at least an hour before serving it for the flavours to meld.

Where do I find buttermilk powder?

I’ve been told that a lot of grocery stores do carry it, look for it in the baking section next to the skim milk powder. Unfortunately I can’t find it at any of the stores in my area, but you might have better luck.

If you’re in Canada, you can find it at Bulk Barn, which is where I get mine.
