Today I'm sharing a mix for ranch dressing. You mix up the spices and keep it in your pantry so that you can make a fresh batch of ranch dressing whenever you need. This mix is so easy to prepare, you'll wonder why you ever bought bottled ranch dressing in the first place!
Because you can mix up only the amount that you need, you never need to worry about checking the expiration date on your bottled dressing again. And, if THAT weren't enough to convince you, making your own seasonings, sauces, and dressings ensures that you control all of the ingredients and don't add unnecessary preservatives.
3 Tbsp dried parsley
1 Tbsp dried dill weed
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
- Mix all spices together. Store in an airtight container.
- To prepare dressing, mix 2/3 cup mayonnaise and 1/3 cup milk with 1 Tbsp of the dry mix. Store in refrigerator. Shake to incorporate before serving.
Make allergy-free ranch dressing by modifying the ingredients to suit any allergy needs in your household. For example, use almond milk instead of regular milk for someone with a dairy allergy. Use soy-free mayo instead of regular mayo for someone with a soy allergy.
You can adjust the ratio of mayo and milk to achieve desired consistency. As written, the recipe makes a dressing that is roughly the same consistency as bottled dressing. If you would prefer a thinner dressing, add more milk and less mayo.
