Ranch Dressing Mix

I keep my own Ranch Dressing Mix on hand.  I like mine better than store-bought because my recipe includes just a hint of dill.

Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
15 saltine crackers
1 cups dry parsley flakes, minced
½ cup instant minced onion
2 T. dry dill weed
¼ cup onion salt
¼ cup garlic salt
¼ cup onion powder
¼ cup garlic powder

Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until completely powdered.  Keep in sealed container.

To use:  For DRESSING - combine 1 T. dry mix, 1 cup mayonnaise (no substitutes), and 1 cup buttermilk. For DIP - combine 1 T. dry mix with 16 oz. sour cream.

And, according to Taste of Home, you can add additional ingredients to make other types of dressings, although I have never personally tried these versions:
  • 2 T. chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and pureed
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
