I’ve been dabbling in making homemade seasonings. I recently made Taco Seasoning and it turned out fantastic! Besides Taco Seasoning, I use a lot of Ranch Seasoning. It is good as a dressing but it’s also good in so many other things (see some recipes at the end of this post.)
Maybe other than the Buttermilk Powder, you probably have all of these things in your pantry. Buttermilk powder can be found with all the other milk powders in the baking aisle of the grocery store. If you can’t find the buttermilk powder, you can always substitute with regular milk powder or just leave it out all together.
2/3 cup buttermilk powder
1/4 cup dried parsley
1 1/2 tbsp. dried minced onion
1 1/2 tbsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tbsp. onion powder
3 tsp. dried dill
2 tsp. dried chives
2 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp. salt
In an airtight container (I love mason jars!), add in all the ingredients:
Put on the lid tightly and give it all a good shake. Note: It’s a good idea to give it a good shake before each use too.
This needs to be stored in the refrigerator because of the buttermilk powder. It can be stored up to 3 months.
Cook’s Note: 3 tbsp. of this mix = 1 packet of the store-bought seasoning mix
To Make Ranch Dressing: Combine 1 tbsp. seasoning mix with 1/3 cup mayo (or Greek yogurt) and 1/3 cup milk; whisk to combine.
