    List of Ingredients

    ◦  cup powdered buttermilk
    ◦  1 Tbsp dried parsley
    ◦  2 tsp dried onion flakes
    ◦  1 tsp onion powder
    ◦  1 tsp garlic powder
    ◦  2 tsp dried dill
    ◦  1 tsp salt
    ◦  tsp black pepper


    Mix all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Or just it in a bowl if you don't have a food processor. Transfer to an airtight container for a month or longer.

    To use: Add 1 tablespoon mix to each cup of mayonnaise, milk, sour cream or other base of your choice.

    Makes 10 servings

    ◦  TIPS for the best homemade ranch dressing mix:

    ∙ Make sure the herbs and spices you use are fresh. If you have to dig them out and dust them off, their flavors will be virtually nonexistent. Just buy some new ones - these are all fairly affordable.

    ∙ This recipe calls for powdered buttermilk. You'll find that in a small tub in the baking aisle next to the powdered milk. If you wanted to swap in some regular powdered milk you could do that instead. The flavor won't be quite as rich, but you'll be okay.

    ∙ Run your homemade ranch dressing mix through a food processor or blender to get all the spices worked in. If you don't have a processor, just mix 'em up and use it anyway. You'll have a chunkier dressing but that won't matter at all.

    ∙ Store your mix in an airtight container in the fridge. A good-quality tupperware or glass jar should keep it from absorbing outside flavors.

    ∙ Use a tablespoon of your powder to every 1 cup of milk, sour cream, Greek yogurt or mayonnaise. Taste as you go and add more if you want to.
