Make Your Own Ranch Dressing Packets

homemade ranch dressing packets-001

The other day I was making a recipe that called for a packet of ranch salad dressing mix. Well, I don’t use these packets very often, so when I went to the cupboard, I found I did not have any on hand. Since I didn’t have time to run to the store and buy some, and I didn’t have time to come up with an alternative recipe, I decided to take a quick look on Pinterest to see if I could make the packets myself. I found this recipe from The Crafty Blog Stalker and it turned out perfect! The only problem was that her recipe made a LOT of dressing. Like 3 1/2 cups of the mix! That would probably last me a lifetime, so I’ve given you a smaller recipe here, which equals about 4 packets of ranch dressing mix (assuming 3 tbsp. to a packet).

Ranch Dressing Mix

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 3 Tbsp. granulated onion
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic salt
  • 1 Tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dill weed
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

Mix together and store in an airtight container. To substitute for a ranch dressing packet in a recipe, use 3 Tbsp. of mix. To make a dip, I used 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup sour cream, and about 1 1/2 TBS of the mix. I had to add about a tablespoon of sugar to get the taste right, but it was really good!
