Ranch dressing is one of those things that is easy to make, yet it’s something folks buy premade at the store. Here’s a quick recipe that uses no unpronounceable or questionable ingredients. It’s adapted from this recipe. Units listed are proportional parts.

  • 1¬† ground dried thyme
  • 2 onion powder
  • 4 garlic powder
  • 6 ground pepper
  • 8 seasoned salt
  • 8 dried parsley

For a single batch of dressing, 1 part = 1/8 teaspoon and yields 1 tablespoon of seasoning mix for 1 pint of dressing.

To make a large batch for use later, 1 part  = 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) and makes 1.5 cups of mix, enough for 24 batches (1.5 gallons) of dressing.

To make the dressing, mix:

  • 1 Tablespoon seasoning mix
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup of
      • Yogurt for thick dressing (you can also use varying amounts of yogurt and whey to adjust consistency)
      • buttermilk for thin dressing
      • sour cream for dip

You can also use this seasoning mixed with bread crumbs for breading chicken.
