Some of my recipes have “packet of ranch dressing seasoning” or “packet of Italian dressing mix” but I don’t use those store bought options! I make my own. They taste better and are much better for you! And they are cheaper in the long run too!
Ranch Dressing seasoning packet mix
- 1/2c dry buttermilk (found in the baking isle near other dry powdered milk)
- 1T dried parsley, crushed
- 1t dried dill weed
- 1t onion powder
- 1t dried onion flakes
- 1t salt
- 1/2t garlic powder
- 1/4t ground pepper
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor, blend/process at high speed until smooth.
Store in fridge (buttermilk powder must be refrigerated once opened).
To make as a salad dressing: combine 1T mix, 1c mayo, and 1c milk.
For any recipe calling for an envelope of ranch dressing mix, use 3T of your homemade mix.
Italian Dressing seasoning packet mix
- 1T garlic salt
- 1T onion powder
- 1T sugar
- 2T dried oregano
- 1t pepper
- 1/4t dried thyme
- 1t dried basil

- 1/4t celery salt
Combine everything and store in a tightly sealed container.
To make as a salad dressing: whisk together 1/4c white vinegar, 2/3c oil, 2T water, and 2T mix
To use in place of an envelope of store bought mix, use 3T of the homemade version
