Tip Tuesday: Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

It’s been a while since we have done a Tip Tuesday post, but here we are with a new one and I hope if you have never taken the few minutes it takes to make your own homemade ranch dressing mix that you will now. It seriously takes less than 10 minutes and the flavor…just wow. You won’t go back to the store bought stuff again!

I love the convenience of having ranch dressing mix on hand for many recipes as well as being able to make my own ranch salad dressing but packaged mixes are full of sodium, MSG, and a bunch of ingredients I cannot even begin to pronounce. So making your own homemade ranch dressing mix is a great option so that you have it on hand to add a tangy zip to your dishes but when you make it yourself you know exactly what is inside it. And that brings peace of mind.

I like to store my ranch dressing mix in little glass jar and then whenever a recipe calls for a packet of Ranch Dressing mix I just scoop out 2 tablespoons and voilà I have yummy ranch goodness!

You can find all the ingredient you need for this recipe at your local grocery store in the spice & baking aisle. To save money you may consider buying the ingredients in bulk.

    To make ranch dressing, what could I substitute the mayo for? I am highly allergic to soybean, and that is the main ingredient for mayo. Any suggestions?
