Have you ever looked at the back of a package of Ranch Dressing Mix.... trust me don't so many words I can not pronounce. My goal was to try to find a Ranch Dressing mix I could keep on hand to use for dips and other recipes when it is called for. Here is what I came up with.

Homemade Powdered Ranch Dressing Mix

1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon dried dill weed

add pepper to taste

In a small bowl, stir together the parsley, salt, seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed, pepper and thyme.
Use as a substitute for Ranch Dressing Mix.





Here is a recipe to make a larger quantity you can store in a cool dry place and just use it as needed for recipes or ranch dressing.

1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons dried parsley
1-1/4 teaspoons seasoned salt
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
2-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-1/4 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
Black Pepper to taste


Uses:
To make dressing, mix this recipe with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk.
For dip, mix this recipe with 1 3/4 cups sour cream and 1/4 cup of buttermilk.
I made this into a dip with 1/4 cup buttermilk, an 8 oz container of fat-free plain yogurt, and about 1/2 cup of light mayonnaise
I mixed it with 1 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup mayo, and 1/2 cup sour cream. perfect consistency and flavor!
