Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

Yum
I've been making little shortcuts here and there around the house to try and use less things from boxes and cans. Lately I've been doing this with seasoning mixes. I was surprised at how many of the seasoning packets could be made with stuff I have on hand. Why didn't I think of doing this before??

This particular shortcut recipe comes from a blog called $5 Dinners. Erin has a great collection of recipes and ways to save and cut costs in the kitchen. Her blog is definitely worth checking out!

Recipe from $5 Dinners
What you need:
  • 2 tbsp. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried dill
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
Directions:
  1. Gently stir together all ingredients.
  2. Store in a ziploc baggie or small canning jar.
  3. We love to use this in Ranch Style Spaghetti and 3 Envelope Chicken. You can also make it into ranch dressing by whisking together 1/3 cup mayo and 1/4 cup milk with 1 tbsp. of the mix. It can be stored for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
Makes about 4 tbsp - 1 packet.
