We are sort of ranch junkies around here, so having homemade ranch seasoning mix on hand will come in well… mighty handy. My daughter loves ranch seasoning on her oven roasted potatoes, and in her pasta salad (as well as on buttered pasta). I also like to mix it in mashed potatoes, and use it in coating for chicken, as well as vegetables.
If you use a lot of ranch seasoning mix in your household as well, you may just find it worth going with homemade too, especially if you don’t always use the whole packet. Resealing a packet, usually works well over the sort term but during humid weather can become unusable sooner than you may like. For those avoiding certain ingredients due to allergies or other concerns, making your own ranch seasoning mix may be essential.
This easy seasoning mix recipe can be stored in an air tight container for 2-3 months, and can readily be adjusted to suit your personal taste. Now I just have to remember to keep this on a high shelf so my curious daughter doesn’t try to “cook” with it, which typically results in a messy floor and a messy grinning child.
