Homemade Ranch Dressing
There are a couple of products I've used to create this dressing that should be available in most supermarkets. One is Morton's Nature's Seasons and the other is Litehouse freeze-dried dill. If you can't find the Morton's seasoning, just use another seasoning salt that includes garlic, onion, parsley and celery. The freeze-dried dill I found at Target in the produce section next to the herbs, but any store that carries Litehouse salad dressings, etc., should have it. Of course, you can use fresh dill if you have it on hand! They also carry freeze-dried parsley and chives and those would work fine in here too. Feel free to adjust the herbs and seasonings to create your own perfect, personal ranch dressing recipe!
1 cup each mayonnaise and buttermilk
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons Morton's Nature's Seasons (or similar seasoned salt)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons each chopped fresh chives and parsley
2 teaspoons freeze-dried or fresh, chopped dill
Combine all the ingredients in a jar. Shake until thoroughly combined (or mix in a large bowl, using a whisk to combine). Refrigerate for at least an hour before using.
