DIY Ranch dressing

I keep seeing ranch dressing or seasoning in American recipes, so I Googled it to see what’s in it. I found this recipe on, and it looks so quick, easy and tasty I thought I’d share it with you here.

A couple of substitutions for UK readers: I’ve never seen dry buttermilk, so you could use dried milk powder instead, or fresh buttermilk/greek yogurt if you’re using the mix straight away. 
You could also use fresh herbs.

Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1/3 cup dry buttermilk (**see note below**)
  • 2 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried dill weed
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried chives
  • 1 tsp. salt


Whisk all ingredients together until blended. If you want a more finely-ground seasoning mix, you can pulse the mixture in a food processor until it reaches your desired consistency.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months. 
**To Make Ranch Dressing: Combine 1 Tbsp. seasoning mix with 1/3 cup mayo and 1/3 cup milk, and whisk to combine. You can also substitute Greek yogurt for the mayo.

I used this for the Creamy Chicken and Bacon Pasta recipe: a big hit!
