I found a great recipe for Homemade Ranch Dressing/Dip Mix. It’s similar to the kind that you buy in the packet, but you can pronounce every ingredient. Here’s the recipe:
I also like that you can grow everything, but the paprika and all that is is a filler it really has no taste, so you could omit it if you wanted to. Now that I have the milk cow I can can not wait to try this in the fresh buttermilk and sour cream.
3 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons pepper
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon dill
Combine all ingredients together and keep in an air tight container.
For salad dressing ~ Add 1 tablespoon of the mix to one cup mayonnaise and one cup buttermilk.
For ranch dip ~ Add 1 tablespoon of mix to 1 cup sour cream.
Just make sure you refrigerate your dressing or dip for at least an hour before you serve so that the flavors have the chance to get mixed together.
What’s great about having the mix on hand like this is that you can just plop a dollop of sour cream into a bowl and add as much mix as you’d like to make an individual serving of ranch dip.
