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!!!

Ranch Recipe

Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


Delicious ranch seasoning mix is super easy to make homemade!



  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • optional: 1/3 cup buttermilk powder*


  1. 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.
  2. Store in a sealed container for up to 1 year.  (If using the buttermilk powder, refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 month.)


Buttermilk powder: If you would like to make ranch seasoning that is identical to the stuff sold in the packet, you can add buttermilk powder to this recipe.  Otherwise, you can just add fresh buttermilk if you are turning this seasoning into ranch dressing.

Store-bought equivalent: Approximately 3 tablespoons of this mix (made with the buttermilk powder mixed in) equals 1 packet of the store-bought ranch seasoning mix.

To make ranch dressing: Combine 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix (including buttermilk powder) + 1/3 cup mayo + 1/3 cup milk, and whisk to combine.

    This has made my life so much easier! We go through a lot of ranch and this is so much faster than getting out all the bottles of spices, etc ; it’s already mixed for you. Tripled the recipe for a big container full. Thank you for a great recipe!!

    I like this better than store-bought ranch dressing.

  10. I’m curious why this has to be stored in the refrigerator…I don’t see any ingredients in it that require refrigeration.
