  1. Recipe yields 12 tablespoons or 3/4 cup.
  2. Try adding your homemade ranch dressing mix to a dredge when making chicken, pork or fish. Use it as a seasoning on popcorn or roasted veggies (potatoes are my favorite) or you could even add it to some butter and brush it over a baguette for a unique twist on garlic bread!
  3. Store in an airtight container or jar for up to 6 months.
  4. To make ranch dressing, combine 3 tbsp ranch dressing mix, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 cup milk. Whisk everything well together, refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. If you would like to make it with buttermilk, you can use my recipe for ranch dressing with 3 tbsp of this dressing mix.
  5. To make ranch dip add 2 tbsp ranch dressing mix to a bowl along with 3/4 cup mayonnaise, 3/4 cup sour cream and 2 tsp lemon juice. Combine everything together, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
