Homemade Dry Ranch Dressing Mix

The best homemade buttermilk ranch dressing spice mix - This simply and easy recipe makes an awesome, healthy, creamy dip or dressing that's just like Hidden Valley. The dry mix can be made with buttermilk powder or with liquid buttermilk. Make the dressing with Greek yogurt or sour cream, mayonnaise, and milk.

Ranch is my favorite. I found a decent low calorie substitute for my beloved but high calorie Hidden Valley Ranch, (Bolthouse Farms is the name I think), but homemade is still better because I can control the ingredients and come out with an overall better flavor.

This particular recipe is nice and works really well as a dip or dressing but also as a rub or seasoning for meat. You could combine the dry mix with breadcrumbs to coat chicken fingers or turkey cutlets or to top a casserole. You could also mix it into sour cream or Greek yogurt to make a nice topping for potatoes or mix it into your guacamole or hummus for a new twist on an old favorite.

Enjoy this dressing mix, and try it once exactly as it's written before you think about making adjustments. It's perfect just the way it is, I promise!

Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients and pulse in a food processor, blender, or spice grinder until powdery.
  2. Use 2-3 heaping tablespoons in place of a packet of store bought ranch mix.
  3. To make ranch dressing, combine 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup light mayo, and 1/4 cup low-fat milk (less for a thicker dip) with 2 tablespoons dry mix. Store dressing in the fridge. Try to make a day in advance as the flavors will blend and taste much better the second day.
