Homemade Ranch Dressing A dry mix to make dressing, dip or add to any recipe!

Homemade Ranch Dressing is a gluten free dry mix to make ahead for dressing, dip or to add to any recipe that calls for a packet of ranch!

I love to have Homemade Ranch Dressing mix made up to make dressing or dip.

It is also great to add to recipes and I know exactly what is in it. I know there is nothing but basic herbs, spices and vegetables. That makes me feel good!

This is made up of staple ingredients that I always have on hand to it is easy to mix up any time.

Parmesan Ranch Chicken is my favorite meal to make with this mix. It is only 4 ingredients; SO easy to put together and delicious!

I don’t think I have to convince you that it is healthier to make your own mixes with basic ingredients but if you are watching your carbs, there is another reason–a big one.

Compare Hidden Valley Ranch packet HERE at 16 carbs per pack with this homemade at 4 carbs per “pack”. That is QUITE a difference!

No, we don’t eat the whole pack but every savings that big counts!
