Ranch Dip Seasoning

IMAG4212

I usually buy some packets of Hidden Valley ranch dip mix to use for dipping veggies, but since I forgot to buy some over the weekend I decided to make my own with this recipe from Add A Pinch. And I’m glad I did, because I had everything on hand and it was a cinch to make.

The hardest part of the recipe was probably locating everything on my spice rack. Not to say that was difficult, it’s just that this recipe is super simple. All it requires is a zillion seasonings, and luckily I had all of them on hand. I didn’t even have to break out my supply of dried herbs from the patio garden. (I’m kind of sad about that one, actually.)

I just added either a tablespoon or teaspoon of each to a bowl…

And stirred the ingredients until well mixed. Then I put the ingredients in a mason jar and shook the jar a bit.

I scooped out a tablespoon of the mixture and added it to a bowl with a cup of sour cream in it, and stirred until the two were well blended.

One cup of ranch dip made about three 1/3 cup servings, so I’m going to bring that to work for the next few days! I actually ended up liking this better than the Hidden Valley ranch dip, for whatever reason, the mix was less powdery so I liked that about it.

This was super easy and convenient. Definitely not putting Hidden Valley on my grocery list anymore. This recipe’s a keeper.
