How to Make Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix

To make Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix, just whisk together all the ingredients. The only way I mixed the seasoning was with a whisk. But, if you want a finer consistency to the seasoning, you can pulse the ingredients together in a food processor until it is as fine as you like it! Store the mix in a sealed container for up to 3 months in the refrigerator.

How to Make Ranch Dressing

Of course, ranch seasoning is needed to make ranch dressing. Being from the midwest, it’s all about ranch dressing on everything! Once you have your seasoning made, it’s super easy to put it into your ranch dressing. Combine 1 Tablespoon of your ranch seasoning mix with 1/3 cup mayonnaise and 1/3 cup milk. You can always add milk if you need to. Also, for a lighter version of the dressing, substitute the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt.

  2. In Australian I havent seen dried buttermilk would you just use dried milk powder and maybe add some vinegar when making up the dressing.

  3. Can the ranch mix be kept in the freezer to make it last longer? It would be great to have it available but I don’t use it often enough to have it last only 3 months.
