Delicious Homemade Ranch Dressing Dry Mix
1 cup powdered milk
1/3 cup of dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried dill weed
2 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
Mix all ingredients together with a fork until blended.
You can store the dry ingredients in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a year, or in refrigerator for up to 3 months.
TO MAKE RANCH DRESSING:
Combine 1 tablespoon of seasoning mix with 1/3 cup mayonnaise and 1/3 cup of buttermilk, and whisk to combine. You can also substitute plain yogurt for the mayo.
If you don’t have buttermilk, you can use regular milk with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar. Mix well and let stand 5 minutes before using.
Note: 2 tablespoons of this dry mix is the equivalent of one package of store bought mix.
