Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix
This all-natural Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix is free of MSG, preservatives, and additives. It’s a great key ingredient for a wide variety of recipes, like dips, dressings, chicken, and even things like popcorn and roasted potatoes!
When I was a kid, ranch was one of my favorite flavors. Ranch dressing was always the magical thing you dipped all of the finger foods into. Chicken strips, cut celery, carrot sticks, you name it.
Oh, and salad. There was lots of ranch dressing on salad.
Ranch dressing is probably the most common form of the ranch flavor theme, but with ranch seasoning mix, you can make all sorts of foods ranch-style. Beyond dressing and dip, I love making ranch popcorn, ranch potato wedges, and crispy ranch chicken tenders. That creamy mix of buttermilk, chives, dill, and spices is a welcome addition to so many dishes.
Though you can buy ranch seasoning packets from the store, I really prefer to make my own, free of MSG and preservatives. It really doesn’t take long to make. Take 5 minutes to mix a few ingredients together, and you’re set.
You can also make your own homemade fajita seasoning that’s free of unrecognizable ingredients as well!
The key ingredient to ranch seasoning mix is dry buttermilk powder. You can pick it up off the shelf of your grocery store, usually in the baking aisle or near the powdered milk.
If you’ve never seen this stuff before, it’s wonderful because you can actually use it for pancakes, waffles, and many other recipes calling for buttermilk, and it keeps for months!
