Learn How-to Make Ranch Seasoning Mix with this easy homemade version takes less than 5 minutes using ingredients you probably already have in the pantry! No more store-bought seasoning packets.
Ranch seasoning was a classic growing up. I remember eating Hidden Value ranch dressing with carrots and celery when I was younger (my mom always bought the fat free ugh….can any of you relate?) Well, this ranch seasoning has so much flavor and is so versatile as to what you can use it on and in. It is simple ingredients that when combined packs a powerful punch of flavor. You can use it as a seasoning or use our Diary free ranch recipe to create a salad dressing or dip.
There is nothing like a fresh seasoning mix that you can easily pull together yourself. I honestly love measuring out the spices and putting them in a bowl next to each other. I think it makes for the coolest photos. It breaks down the seasoning that everyone refers to as “ranch” and shows each component that it entails. Nerding out on spices, what can I say?
This is as easy as we stated. Find a small bowl, and start measuring out the spices. Two tablespoons of dried dill, two tablespoons of dried parsley, one and a half tablespoons of garlic powder, two tablespoons of onion powder, two teaspoons of salt, one teaspoon fresh black pepper. Once you have everything measure out mix it well. I find that putting it in a mason jar with a lid is a great way to mix it up and with their smaller jars it makes it even easier to store. If you are using organic ingredients this will last up to six months, after that it may start caking together.
