A couple homemade mixes

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
  • 1T dried parsley
  • 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
