Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix

Newsflash for ranch lovers!  Did you know that it is super duper easy to make delicious ranch seasoning mix homemade?

True story.  No need to run to the store for one of those processed packets, or to pick up a jar of your favorite ranch dressing or dip.  All of the ingredients are likely sitting right there in your spice cabinet!  Just do a little measuring, a little mixing, and you’re ready to make your favorite ranch dressing or dip or whatever other ranch-ness you may love in less than 5 minutes.  It is seriously that easy!

The great thing too about homemade ranch seasoning is that it won’t be full of un-pronounceable mystery ingredients.  Just your simple herbs and spices, and some optional powdered buttermilk if you’d like (similar to powdered milk).

I love using mine to make skinny Greek yogurt ranch dip, ranch dressing, or I’ll even just use the mix to season some chicken or fries.  Delish!!!

What is your favorite way to enjoy ranch?

Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix

Delicious ranch seasoning mix is super easy to make homemade!


  • 1/3 cup dry powdered buttermilk (*see note below)
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Whisk all ingredients together until blended. If you want a more finely-ground seasoning mix, you can pulse the mixture in a food processor until it reaches your desired consistency.

Store in a sealed container (here is the jar I used) in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

*3 Tablespoons of this mix = 1 packet of the store-bought seasoning mix

**To Make Ranch Dressing:

Combine 1 Tbsp. seasoning mix with 1/3 cup mayo and 1/3 cup milk, and whisk to combine. You can also substitute Greek yogurt for the mayo.

**You can omit the buttermilk powder if you would like to use fresh buttermilk, or if you would just like the straight spices for the seasoning mix.**

If you make this recipe, be sure to snap a photo and hashtag it #gimmesomeoven. I'd love to see what you cook!

    OMG I love your ceramic measuring spoons! Where did you get them?

    • Ali — March 27th, 2017 @ 5:13 pm

      Thank you! I think I purchased them a few years ago at World Market. :) They might still have them!

    I was at the store and every mix had msg in it. Just made this in my food processor and am very excited to make dressing and dip. Thank you so much!

      Yay! We hope you love it, Erin!

    Great taste but super thin. I used Greek yogurt because I’m allergic to eggs (mayo). Thoughts on making less liquid?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — March 11th, 2017 @ 10:03 pm

      Hi Lillie! We’re sorry this came out on the thin side for you. We think you might want to just gradually add the milk until you get the consistency you’re looking for (it sounds like the milk is what made it too thin, not the Greek yogurt). We hope this helps!

    Just wanted to tell you that I don’t typically “follow” bloggers. But I have stumbled upon, and made, several of your recipes and each one has been perfect! I am trying this one today, for a one pan roasted ranch chicken and vegetables dish. My family loves it, but I’ve been avoiding it because we are focusing on cleaner eating. I also plan to try to make ranch dip with it – I can NOT seem to wean my 6 year old off the old Hidden Valley Ranch! I’ll let you know if you save the day! :) Thanks for the amazing recipes!
