Ranch Dressing Dry Mix

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.
