Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

I love my Homemade Ranch Dressing, but it’s a bit of a PITA to make because you have to measure out all of the ingredients. My solution is to mix the dry ingredients ahead of time and store them in a little jar.

I like to combine enough for six batches, so that’s what this recipe makes, but you can do the math and make more or less if you want.

Ingredients for the mix:

 teaspoons dried chives
 teaspoons dried parsley
 teaspoons onion powder
1½ teaspoon garlic powder

1½ teaspoon dried dill weed
3/8 teaspoon salt (or eyeball it)
3/8 teaspoon ground black pepper (or eyeball it)


Place all ingredients in a jar, stir or shake.

To make the dressing:

Place two heaping teaspoons of the dry mix in a bowl.
Add 1/2 cup maynnaise.
Blend well with a stick blender, whisk, or fork.
Add 1/2 cup sour cream.
Blend well with a stick blender, whisk, or fork.
Add 1/2 cup buttermilk.
Blend well with a stick blender, whisk, or fork.

Cover or pour into a jar and refrigerate.

Alternatively, you can skip the sour cream and use 1 cup of buttermilk, for runnier dressing. Or, you can skip the buttermilk and use 1 cup of sour cream for dip.
