  • 1/2 cup dry buttermilk
  • 2 TBSP dried parsley
  • 1 TBSP onion powder
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp dill weed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 16- oz container of sour cream


  • Combine all spices in a small food processor. Pulse several times, until mixture is more powder-like.
  • Mix 3 tablespoons of the ranch seasoning (which is the equivalent of 1 packet of store-bought ranch) with 16 oz sour cream. Let sit for several hours, stir, then serve.
  • To make Ranch dressing: Combine 3 TBSP of this Ranch mix with 1/3 cup mayo, 1/3 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk. Taste, then adjust to your liking!
  • This dip pairs well with a variety of foods like chips, carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumber slices, hot wings, chicken strips, etc. Get creative- I even like it on French Fries!  


*Using a small food processor is optional- you can just stir the seasonings all together and go from there!
