I love, love, love my homemade taco seasoning mix. It’s convenient, cheap and oh-so-tasty. And I’m mixing up a new homemade seasoning mix today…this time for ranch dressing!

This past weekend I planted some lettuce and other cold weather veggies (more on that this weekend).  I try to eat a salad for lunch everyday and usually mix up a quick vinaigrette (yeah for cheap olive oil this week!).  And while I love my vinaigrettes, I also like variety.  I’ve been craving ranch dressing lately and much prefer this homemade version.  While I wait for the fresh parsley, dill and basil to grow up in the garden and be ready for some “fresh herbs” ranch dressing mix, I plan on using this version with the dried spices until then.

I also love this because it costs a fraction of what you would pay for a packet at the store, and makes twice as much!

Before we get to the recipe, how about a few homemade seasoning mixes to try out!

Homemade Ranch Dressing Seasoning Mix

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Directions

  • Add each of the dried spices to a bowl and gently stir.

  • Store in a resealable plastic baggie or small ball canning jar with tight fitting lid  in your spice cabinet.
  • To make the ranch dressing, whisk together 1/3 cup mayonnaise with 1/4 cup milk (more or less depending on the consistency you want) with 1 Tbsp of the homemade ranch dressing seasoning mix.  Season with salt, to taste. Use immediately and can refrigerate for up to 3 days.
  • Makes about 4 Tbsp worth of mix. Or use the ratios above and mix up however much you’ll need!

Needed ranch for a recipe, but I forgot to buy some. Tried this recipe, and it did not disappoint. It is perfect! I won’t be buying the packaged stuff again. Thank you!
