My Homemade Ranch Seasoning recipe yields a classic ranch flavor while being both Keto and Whole30 friendly. This seasoning mix only has a handful of ingredients with none of the stuff we don’t want. It goes well on so many foods like steak and chicken. It even tastes fantastic on roasted veggies.
How to Make Ranch Seasoning Mix
With only seven dry ingredients, it is super simple and easy to make homemade ranch seasoning. All you need is a small bowl, measuring spoons, and a small spoon or whisk to mix it together.
When mixed up, pour the ranch seasoning mix into a small, clean mason jar. I tend to store mine there until I’m ready to use it.
Ranch Seasoning Without Buttermilk
Some ranch seasoning recipes use buttermilk powder. However, buttermilk powder is not Whole30 compliant. My recipe is both Whole30 compliant and dairy-free. And, it still has the delicious ranch taste you know and love.
How much ranch seasoning is in a packet
If you are following a recipe that calls for “one packet of Ranch seasoning” or “1 ounce of ranch seasoning” you’ll need to know how much ranch seasoning mix to use.
Though one packet may vary between brands, the conversion is 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons. So, if you are following a recipe that calls for 2 ounces of ranch seasoning, you would use 4 tablespoons of my ranch seasoning mix.
Making Homemade Ranch Dressing
You can use this seasoning mix to make ranch dressing. Besides this spice mix, you simply combine sour cream, mayo, and lemon juice in a small bowl. I pair it with my BLT Avocado Salad. I also use it as a dip for my dry rub chicken wings.
How to make a Ranch Dip Instead
Going to a get-together and need something tasty and keto-friendly to bring? You can use the homemade ranch seasoning mix to create a ranch dip.
To make a dip, all you need is:
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon of homemade ranch dressing mix
Add both ingredients into a small bowl and mix until well combined. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Store it in an airtight container to bring to your get together or serve it to the kids as a snack.
