Today’s photo challenge topic is “spices”, so I thought I’d share with you a great recipe for Homemade Ranch Dressing/Dip Mix. It’s similar to the kind that you buy in the packet, but you can pronounce every ingredient. 🙂 Here’s the recipe:
- 3 tablespoons dried onion flakes
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dill
Combine all ingredients together and keep in an air tight container.
For salad dressing ~ Add 1 tablespoon of the mix to one cup mayonnaise and one cup buttermilk. Feel free to add more if you’d like!
For ranch dip ~ Add 1 tablespoon of mix to 1 cup sour cream.
Just make sure you refrigerate your dressing or dip for at least an hour before you serve so that the flavors have the chance to party together!
What’s great about having the mix on hand like this is that you can just plop a dollop of sour cream into a bowl and add as much mix as you’d like to make an individual serving of ranch dip. It helps to make it easy to eat your veggies at lunch time!
