Homemade ranch seasoning is so easy to make and even more delicious than store bought ranch dressing mix! Mix up your own in just 5 minutes!



  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients and keep in a sealed container.


  • Store in an airtight container, I use a small mason jar.
  • Use this for flavoring foods like combining with breading for chicken tenders.
  • You can make actual ranch salad dressing with it by combining 1 tablespoon of the seasonings with a third cup of real mayonnaise and a quarter cup of buttermilk (add more or less buttermilk if you want it thicker or thinner.)
  • If you do not have buttermilk, make your own by pouring 1 1/2 teaspoons of lemon juice into a glass measuring cup. Add  1/2 cup of milk (higher fat is better). Allow to milk mixture to sit for 10 minutes before using it to make the dressing.
  • Regular milk can also be substituted for a slightly different but still wonderful flavor!
