Ranch Dressing/Dip Dry Mix


I've been looking around for a good substitute for the dry Ranch mix you buy and have tried several but wasn't really pleased with any that I found. So I decided to kinda wing it and use parts of a few different recipes I found. (food.com)  I adapted them a bit to my preference and I like it a lot. I've been using the mix for a while now and the kids are slowly getting used to the 'ranch' stuff around here tasting a bit different but over all they have been willing to eat it.

Ingredients:
½ cup dried onion flakes
1-2 Tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1-2 Tablespoons dried 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 process till well combined and the onion flakes are fine. Store in an airtight glass jar.

For the dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon dry mix





For the veggie dip:
½ cup sour cream
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
dry mix to taste

This mix has a strong flavor so a little goes a long way. Just add till your taste buds say it's perfect for you.

Be Blessed!
