Looking for healthier alternatives to dry mixes? Salad dressing is a great start. Dry mixes (and premade) contain a wide range of cheap oils, sweeteners and questionable thickeners. It’s easy to make your own and have it on hand in the pantry for a quick solution.
Ranch Dressing Dry Mix
- 2 Tbsp dried parsley
- 2 tsp dried onion
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp granulated garlic
- 1½ tsp dill weed
- 1 tsp fine sea salt
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
Add the ingredients into a small mason jar, seal and shake to combine.
To make dressing:
- 1 Tbsp dry mix
- 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
Add yogurt to a small mason jar, stir in dry mix. Add buttermilk, seal jar and shake to combine.
Let chill for a few hours before using.
Makes about 4 batches of dressing.
This makes a thick, dip like dressing. For a salad dressing you may want to mix in a bit more buttermilk, or mayonnaise, to make it easier to drizzle.
