Homemade Ranch Seasoning

  I use ranch seasoning a lot, especially while freezer cooking, but those little packets are pretty expensive and filled with unhealthy preservatives. So after collecting a ton recipes for my posts 30 Items You Can Make at Home to Save Money and 40 Groceries to Stop Buying and Start Making to Save Money, I was inspired to try my hand at making some of my own mixes.

  This is the first seasoning mix that I’ve tried making and I’m in love! It’s so nice to have it on hand and not have to worry about running out to the store, especially when I do bulk cooking and need a lot of it. I hope you love it as much as I do and I can’t wait to try out other mixes soon.

How to make Homemade Ranch Seasoning:

Gather all the ingredients.

Mix all ingredients and store in air tight container.

That’s it!

Two tablespoons = 1 packet dry ranch seasoning.

  1. I'm so glad I found you on Thrifty Thursdays Link Party because I have been trying to find a good homemade Ranch recipe. I hope this one is yummy. I have all this stuff in my kitchen so I will try it tonight :)
    1. When I make this dressing mix I don't put the buttermilk in because I usually never have any dry because I make my own. When I make it into dressing I mix it with a cup of plain greek yogurt thinned with milk. Same taste. To use for cooking I just use as is without the buttermilk.
    1. I've only used it as a dry mix, but here is a link with instructions to use it as a dip or dressing. http://happymoneysaver.com/diy-copycat-homemade-hidden-valley-ranch-mix/
      1. Does it need to be refrigerated? My container of powdered buttermilk says refrigerate after opening so I'm curious if this mix should be since it's made with the powdered buttermilk??

    1. Yes. I add both dill and chives. Both of these, along with parsley are in hidden valley. I LOVE dill. It is yummy.
  3. I love skipping the extra ingredients that are put into store bought things. I am going to try this next time I make our favorite pasta salad! It is amazing how much better you feel when you start to get away from processed foods.
  4. I’m very glad I found you! Now I have a partner that loves to cook from scratch as much as I do and saving money at the same time!! My Grandma never made anything that wasn’t from scratch. I should have paid more attention to how she did things…🥰
