Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix

This is post three of a three part post.  The first was my Chopped Kale Salad, the second was my Balsamic Vinaigrette and this one is the dry Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix.  So, what’s the connection between the three posts?  (Just in case you started with this post and haven’t seen the others)  This Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix is used as an ingredient in my Balsamic Vinaigrette.  The Balsamic Vinaigrette is what I pair with the Chopped Kale Salad.  See where I’m going with this?

In keeping the three recipes separate, it’s easier to find them later on.  Plus each one can be independent for many recipes to come!

Take this Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix.  I can think of a half a dozen recipes I could use this in.  I use it in the Balsamic Vinaigrette, but it can be used to make traditional Ranch Salad Dressing as well as a fabulous Ranch Dip for raw vegetables, chicken wings and potato chips!

Here’s how I make it.

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix

Buttermilk Ranch Dr Mix W01

In a small bowl, mix together the dry buttermilk powder, dill weed, onion powder, dried parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Dry buttermilk powder?  Yep, it’s available in any grocery store in the powdered milk or baking section.  It’s super handy for those of us that might not always have fresh buttermilk on hand all the time.  Mine is labeled as cultured buttermilk blend and it comes in a 12 ounce container.  It also has to be refrigerated after opening…  just so you know…

Just whisk it together until it’s mixed well and evenly distributed.

Pour into a container fitted with an airtight lid to maintain freshness and keep in the refrigerator.  Since the buttermilk powder needs to be refrigerated, I do tend to keep this mix there too.  Just for safety measure.

Buttermilk Ranch Dr Mix W06

For my convenience, I also label the container with quick recipes.  Here’s a couple that are probably the most popular:

For Ranch Salad Dressing:  Combine 1 Tablespoon of mix + 1 cup mayo + 1/2 cup milk.

For Ranch Dip: Combine 2 Tablespoons of mix + 1 pint sour cream.
