What You Need

2 Tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion flakes
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp pepper

What To Do

Place all ingredients in a bowl

and mix. Place your mix in a baggie or mason jar.

For Ranch Dressing

Whisk – 1 Tablespoon of Mix + 1/3 Cup of Mayonnaise ( or 1/3 cup non fat Greek yogurt)  + 1/4 Cup of Milk + Salt to taste

You can use the ranch mix to make Ranch Dip by mixing in sour cream. It really is a taste thing in terms of how much sour cream you use. I usually do 1.5 cups per tablespoon of mix. Remember to add salt to taste

It is really good. I did some tweeking on my version, adding a tsp. of Italian seasoning and using seasoning salt in the mix. I also increased the onion as it needed a bit more (my taste buds said)

Sounds wonderful :)

Or you can do a vegan version with silken tofu and plant milk. I like to use unsweetened almond milk, but even water works fine.

Thank you! I am excited to find this recipe – I’m trying soon.

I was at the grocery this week and had ranch dressing mix on my list to buy. Until, that is, I got to the shelve where it is sold and saw the price. I left it sitting there and did a web serach when I got home for a homemade recipe for the mix. Thanks for the post. All the ingredients are in my pantry and I never knew.

I am so glad I could help :)

This is awesome! Thanks! Hubby needs to stay away from MSG and EVERY powder and premade dressing I can find has MSG in it! Now I can make my own and control what is in it!

Believe it or not they don’t sell ranch dressing in the UK (that I can find) and I’d love to have some again. Thanks for the recipe!

If a recipe (taco soup for example) calls for 1 packet of Ranch dressing mix, how much of this mix do I use? thanks

In your Ranch Dressing mix did you use dill weed or dill seed, I couldn’t find just plain dried dill in stores.


Tammi January 2, 2013 at 6:56 pm

It would be dill weed

Can’t wait to try it! However, when I went to print the recipe, my computer blocked me printing it saying it was a malicious site. You might want to check that out because your site is so awesome!


Sherrie Hill March 28, 2013 at 9:48 pm

thank you so much for the recipe!! I have recently found out I have allergies to soy, corn and egg whites…all of which is in ranch dressing. (the only dressing I eat) I am going to try this with vegan mayo that I can eat and buttermilk……can’t wait to finally have some dressing again! Thanks again!!


Danielle October 20, 2013 at 6:34 pm

Thank you for the idea! I am going to give it a try with sour cream, for dip!


Cyndee Baldwin November 6, 2013 at 4:08 pm

When a recipe calls for a packet of Hidden valley dip mix how much of this would you use?


bev February 21, 2014 at 10:32 pm

We are trying to be more fresh and home made.


Krystal April 11, 2014 at 12:25 am

So i found this on Pintrest and I first tried it using greek yogurt and I really did not care for it at all, but I did not give up. I tried again using mayonnaise… Can I say I am in LOVE!! Thank you!
