I love this because it is truly versatile!  Not only can you make your own ranch, but you can also make your own dip with it.  I whip up huge batches of this Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix in a jar in my kitchen because my daughter is allergic to milk and I refuse to pay $4-$5 for a bottle of dairy-free ranch dressing.  This makes the best tasting dairy free ranch dressing and dip.  This is also great for those of you that are Vegan, and can’t have dairy for that reason.

Comments

  1. Thanks for both recipes. The only way to get my son to eat veggies is to offer them with Ranch. I”ve been looking for a good homemade alternative to the store-bought versions & I know that any recipe from you will be great!

    • Kathy,

      That is a great question. We go through it pretty fast with 3 kids in the house. I think the longest it has ever been in the fridge was about a week and it was still good. 😉 I am sure it would last about 2 weeks without a problem. Depending on the code date on the milk.

  2. Thank you so much for this!! I finally broke down and bought some packets of Ranch dressing mix for a few recipes I’ve been wanting to try out and it hurt my heart to buy them without a coupon! LOL Now I’ve just got to pick up some dill and I’m all set to have a batch of ranch whenever I want it. 😀

  3. You say you make this up in big batches (I’m assuming you mean the dry mix?) – how much of the mix do you use for a batch of dressing?

  4. I found this link on Pinterest. I’ve seen plenty of recipes for homemade ranch dressing, but this recipe for the dry mix is so much more versatile! Thanks for sharing.

  5. This recipe looks delicious! My son is allergic to eggs, which are in mayo. Ranch was his fave, but it seems that it’s what’s causing the hives. 🙁 Suggestions for making the dressing egg-free?


  6. I love this recipe! My daughter is allergic to soy and dairy, and ranch in a staple in things I make half the time, so I’ve had to go without until now! 😀 The only thing I noticed is when I made this, it was really runny. Is there a way to thicken it up just slightly without ruining the taste?


  7. This is spot-on. I am a ranch snob and have tried so many different homemade dry ranch mixes. This is my favorite, by a long shot! One tip: something I’ve learned along the way in trying out these different mixes…I throw all the spices in the food processor and grind them up smaller. Otherwise it seems like there are chunks of parsley and such that get caught in our throats and makes us cough 🙂 Thanks for a fabulous recipe!

  8. Thanks for all the great homemade seasoning mix recipes! My son has many food allergies, including dairy and soy, so these have been so helpful! To make dairy free ranch dip, I mix with Plain Coconut Milk Yogurt from SO Delicious. It’s great!

  9. Hello, This looks wonderful! Just one question–hopefully not a silly one. 🙂 Do you use dill weed or dill seed? I am guessing dill weed, but I never really have known the difference. Thanks!
