Everyone loves the powdered ranch dressing mix. Well, I have the recipe! I was lucky enough to have all the ingredients on hand. I actually like it a little better than the store bought.
Mix dried ingredients together in small bowl.
Whisk mayonnaise and buttermilk together. Add Ranch Dressing Mix. Mix together. Refrigerate. Mmmmmmm!

In an electric blender, blend crackers on high speed until powdered. Add parsley, minced onions, and dill weed. Blend again until powdered. Dump into bowl. Stir in onion salt, garlic salt, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Mix well. Store in 1 cup sealed container. Shake well. Mix 1 Tbsp. mix with 3/4 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1/2 cup sour cream to make about 2 cups dressing.

Is this the dip recipe or salad dressing recipe or can it be used for both?
Debbie, I have used this recipe only for the salad dressing, but I bet it would be great added to sour cream for a dip also. Thanks for bringing that to my attention! Hope you try it & like it!
Thank you for sharing, this will save me alot of money on those little pkgs from the store.
Thanks cookiemom....so in other words, could take dry mix part and just add to a small container of sour cream? I should try that. I think the kids would like it for dipping veggies.
Here is my recipe for ranch salad dressing; Mix together thoroughly 1 cup mayonaise,1 cup buttermilk, 2 tsp. instant minced onion, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1 Tbs. dried parsley flakes and 1/2 tsp. salt. Chill.( may add 1/8 tsp dill weed OR 1/2 tsp. mustard seed for a change of flavor)
For Dip: substitute 1 cup sour cream for buttermilk.
why the saltines?
For Mrsmom43 - this is for the dry Ranch Dressing mix not the liquid.
Debbie 52, Wow this is an old msg. Sorry I've just now got the inquiry. And the answer to your questions is.......it can be used for both.
I'm from the UK and sometimes I hit an ingredient in a recipe I just don't have a clue what it is, and that has happened here, what is MSG?
Also if anyone knows an alternative for saltine crackers, I'd be grateful! :-) Just don't get them here.
AND I have read a lot of recipes that recommend Ranch dressing, so I'd really like to thank Cookiesmom for posting this! Again, living in the UK, we just don't have this here!
It can be used for both!
hi dragon sue. i live in malta and have the same problem trying to decipher different US terms to British. i have a feeling saltine crackers are CREAM CRACKERS.and MSG is in the herb and spice section of the supermarket. in malta, we call it monosodium glutamate.just for your info in the future, graham crackers are our digestive biscuits. and of course american cookies are OUR biscuits. american BISCUITS are our scones. hope this helps.
