The only thing not so “snappy” about these homemade ranch seasoning recipes is the time it takes at the store to find all the spices and ingredients.  If you can’t find some, check out Penzey’s for a great assortment of herbs, spices, and more.  You’ll also need some dried buttermilk such as King Arthur’s. Once you have all your ingredients, it literally only takes a few minutes to combine for your own Ranch mixes.  I started off by making a recipe for an “original” version of Ranch, then quickly started adding other things I had around the house for different flavors.  Next thing I knew I had 5 more Ranch flavors: Bold Onion, Lemon Poppy, Garlic-Dill, Italian, and Mexican.

Ranch Seasoning Recipe | snappygourmet.comYou can use these Ranch mixes just as you would the store-bought version.  You can make dips, salad dressings, or use in breading for fish/chicken, etc.  The ideas are endless!  About 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of homemade Ranch seasoning equals one (1 oz.) packet of Ranch seasoning.  However, I’d suggest starting with about 2 tablespoons to your recipes then add more to taste.  You might also have to adjust the quantities of the herbs and spices for your family’s personal taste.  Results may also vary a bit depending on how old your herbs and spices are so adjust accordingly.

One last thing, be sure to check the expiration date on your dried buttermilk so you know how long you can store your homemade Ranch seasoning. What flavor of Ranch mix would you create?  Tell me about it below!  Enjoy!

    Neat idea! Do you stir some of the mix into sour cream or how do you turn it into dressing? I’ve never used a packet for ranch (my only experience is with Good Seasoning’s Italian packets)…

  3. 5

    I will definitely be using these when the fall/winter comes. I love using Ranch seasonings! Thanks so much for sharing these!

      Funny you should mention using the ranch seasoning in the winter, I was actually going to save this recipe until winter but my buttermilk was expiring soon! LOL :)

  4. 7

    This is such an awesome idea! I need to make the ranch as that is my daughters favorite.

  5. 8

    Oh hey I just stumbled upon your homemade ranch seasonings here! I can’t believe I missed this when you first posted it. Ranch is my absolute favorite dressing :D

    Kaye Durham says:

    Do you have to refrigerate the mixes. My dried buttermilk says to refrigerate after opening.

    • 13

      If your dried buttermilk says to refrigerate after opening I would refrigerate. The brands of buttermilk I used did not say to refrigerate, so I did not refrigerate mine.

  8. 14

    Is there anything I can substitute for the dried buttermilk or can I leave it out? My daughter has a dairy allergy. Thanks!

    • 15

      HI! Sorry to hear about your daughter’s allergy. You could definitely try a dry milk substitute, but I’m afraid I’m not too familiar with them. You could omit it, but you’ll be left with more of an herb mix. The herb mix will still be good though you just couldn’t substitute it in the same amounts as a Ranch packet mix.
