Tips for making this homemade ranch seasoning recipe:
- Consider adding more (or less) of each seasoning to adapt to your tastebuds. For a dairy-free version of this ranch seasoning, ignore buttermilk powder and combine everything as normal!
- To make this a salad dressing, combine 1 1/2 tablespoons of mix with 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup mayonnaise. Substitute mayo with plain Greek yogurt if desired!
- To make a ranch dip try combining 1 1/2 tablespoons mix with 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1/2 cup sour cream. This makes a thick tasty dip for veggies.
- In an air-tight container, you can store this ranch seasoning for future use up to a year, depending on the age of the spices used. Make multiple batches at once for a larger amount if desired!
I honestly think this tastes even better than the ranch packets!
If it’s possible to get a “ranch-ier” taste, this is it. Be sure to let the homemade dressing hang out in the fridge for a bit first to develop even more flavor. Then, get ready for the freshest dressing of your life!
As we mentioned earlier, it’s not just salads that would pair well with this dressing. There are so many different foods to dip in ranch. 😋
Now you can use your homemade ranch seasoning in so many recipes!
I love to use ranch seasoning to flavor mashed potatoes, ranch taco soup, burgers on the grill, and roasted vegetables. The ranch BLT salad, pictured above, is also fantastic! No matter what you use it for, this homemade ranch seasoning is a game-changer that’s sure to win over the dinner table.
