Homemade Ranch Dressing and Seasoning Mix

Ranch Dressing lovers get ready to have your socks knocked off, you can make your own Ranch Seasoning Mix at home!


If your family loves ranch dressing as much as mine does, you know how expensive those store-bought bottles can be. My family not only puts it on their salads, but also likes to dip fresh veggies and chicken tenders in it as well. I also use it in my cooking occasionally, and add the dry seasoning mix to my fried chicken recipe for a yummy twist.



That's why I'm not only sharing with you my ranch dressing recipe, but the actual dry seasoning mix that I make it with. Did you know you can still buy those little packets of seasoning mix in the salad dressing aisle of the store? But honestly, why would you want to? Not only are they expensive, but who wants to put all of those unpronounceable preservatives and chemicals in their body? My homemade version only uses four simple ingredients, that most of us always have in our pantry. So it's easy-peasy to whip up, and keep on hand to quickly make your family a batch of ranch dressing whenever the need arises.
