Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

July 06,2011

I love easy recipes, I just don’t always love the ingredients easy recipes use.  Case in point:  using canned soup or seasoning mix, both of which usually contain some pretty funky ingredients that I try to avoid in my cooking.

I’ve shared my homemade taco mix with you before which we use all the time in our home cooking.  But recently I came up with another version of healthy mix that has come in handy:  Ranch Dressing Mix.

This quick mix can be doubled or tripled and stored as needed, or just made in a single batch for a recipe flavor boost.  All the ingredients are natural and the flavors are just as yummy as the kind you can buy in the store, with the bonus of being much less expensive than store bought Ranch Dressing Mix.

Sweet Pea’s Ranch Dressing Mix

1 tablespoon dried parsley
¼ teaspoon dried dill weed
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¾  teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Combine all ingredients and stir well.
