Heartfelt Holidays: Homemade Ranch Seasoning

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy for more details.


My family loves ranch dressing and dip. After reading the labels on the ranch packets and discovering they contained MSG, I decided to come up with my own ranch seasoning recipe. It is actually very easy to make your own seasoning!

Homemade Ranch Seasoning

2 Tablespoons Dried Parsley
1 Tablespoon Dried Dill
4 teaspoons Onion Powder
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Dried Minced Garlic
1/2 teaspoon Ground Pepper
3/4 teaspoon Paprika

Measure out all of the spices and combine in a bowl. Place in a blender and pulse a few times. Blend until spices are combined and smooth. Store in an airtight container.

To make ranch dressing mix 1 Tablespoon ranch mix with 1 cup milk and 1 cup mayonnaise. To make a ranch dip combine 1 Tablespoon ranch mix with 1 cup sour cream.


  • I made four batches of the mix to give as gifts. I will package the mix in glass spice jars but you could also just package in zipper bags. Make sure to include instructions.
  • For the blending process, I used my KitchenAid Immersion Blender with the chopper attachment. I love, love, love this immersion blender set and use it almost daily.
  • Spices can be found pretty inexpensively. Usually you can find store brands on sale for about $1 a bottle. Also look at Dollar Tree.
