I don’t know about you guys but ranch dressing has been happening a lot around here lately!  I don’t know if it’s because it’s summer and the kids are constantly wanting a snack??  I’ve been going for quick and easy snacks—- carrots with ranch, broccoli with ranch, cucumbers with—- you guessed it, ranch.

(oh, and just in case anyone goes through the ingredient list on the recipe and compares it to this picture above that is a little extra salt.  It was an empty spot and just needed something to fill it in 🙂 )

So, instead of buying bottle after bottle I wanted to make my own.  I tried out many different recipes and tweaked many to create this one I am sharing here with you today.  I feel it’s the closest I can come to the ever coveted bottle of Hidden Valley.  And to be honest, my family liked it better!  Needless, to say I was happy with that!!

This recipe couldn’t be any simpler or quicker to put together either and it stores well.  It’s also a really great substitute to those packets of dry ranch mix!  So, instead of buying that bottle of dressing or packet- make this homemade ranch seasoning instead!!

    I just put together this recipe. So far it taste great. Leaving it sit to marry ingredients now. I like that this will lasts about 3 months. Why does it need refrigerated?

    • Hi Chris! I keep it in the refrigerator just to keep it fresher longer. If you plan on using it pretty quickly (within a few weeks) then don’t worry about refrigerating it.
