Ranch Seasoning Mix is a spice blend that can be used to make salad dressings, dips or season proteins, such as chicken.
The spices that make up this spice blend are staples in my pantry, so it is convenient for me to make it when needed. I store the mix in a small glass jar.
I found this recipe on the Gimme Some Oven site. The original recipe calls for optionally adding buttermilk powder. I omitted because buttermilk powder requires refrigeration and I wanted to use this spice blend with chicken.
If you want to use the Ranch Seasoning Mix to make Ranch Dressing, whisk together one tablespoon of the Ranch Seasoning Mix, 1/3 cup of mayonnaise and 1/3 cup of buttermilk. If you included buttermilk powder in your spice blend, then use milk instead of buttermilk. If you don't have buttermilk, add about one half teaspoon of vinegar to the milk to make buttermilk before whisking with the spice blend and mayo.
If you want to make a Ranch Dip, whisk together one cup of Greek yogurt or sour cream with about three tablespoons of the Ranch Seasoning mix. You can also use 1/2 yogurt or sour cream with 1/2 cup of mayonnaise. The dip will have better flavor if you refrigerate it for a few hours before enjoying.
Speaking of dips, have you tried Hot Artichoke Dip? It's one of my favorite dips. It blends artichoke hearts, mayonnaise and Parmesan Cheese. Serve it warm with corn chips.
I hope you enjoy the Ranch Seasoning Mix!
