Homemade Ranch Seasoning Packets

I’ve made these Homemade Ranch Seasoning Packets for many years. It was the most cost effective way to ensure that we never ran out of our favorite salad dressing and veggie dip “Ranch”.

When my boys were young they would dip everything from hot dogs to pizza in ranch dressing so it was something that I had to have on hand all the time. Since beginning my Trim Healthy Mama journey I’ve noticed that I do use ranch way more than I used to along with the Slim Belly Vinaigrette from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook

Disclosure Statement(although I was making it long before the recipe was published…. shhhh)

Homemade Ranch Seasoning Packets are really easy to put together, and they make great gifts around the holidays.

It takes about 10-15 minutes to measure everything out and buzz it in a spice grinder or whisk it all together.

Here’s the product link on Amazon if you want to see if it fits your model. I love the coffee/spice grinder attachment that I have for my Ninja Blender like this one.

Here’s the Blender set up that I use.

 

 One thing I really love to do is to mix one of these Homemade Ranch Seasoning Packets with my 5 Minute Mayo and some Greek Yogurt to keep on hand as a handy Dip, sometimes I make it that way and keep 1/2 as a dip and thin the other 1/2 into pour-able Ranch Salad Dressing.

When making these as a gift I use small ziplock bags and top them with  Cute Bag Toppers or in Seed Packets so that they stay fresh and are easily stored in a cabinet or cupboard.

 

I take them with us camping so that I’m not carrying a bunch of bottles and bowls and we mix it up as needed to conserve space, not to mention money.

They work well as a marinade and seasoning for Chicken and Pork or added to a Pot Roast in my Instant Pot like this one.
