Ranch Dressing Mix Recipe

1 cup powdered buttermilk
2 tablespoons dried dill weed
6 tablespoons dried parsley
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.
