Recipe: Ranch Flavored Dip

Pin It

I was browsing through the $5 Dinner Mom’s website when I came across her ingenious idea to mix up a big batch of seasonings atRanch Flavored Dip from 100 Days of Real Food one time for an easy homemade Ranch dressing. Once your spice mixture has been made it’s a very simple process to add your perishable ingredient whenever you’re in the mood for some homemade dressing. Talk about being efficient! Now we prefer a Ranch dip over a dressing at our house (especially since it magically makes my 6-year-old eat twice as many carrots as normal) so below is a modified version that turns Erin’s spice mixture into a Ranch dip instead of a Ranch dressing. Enjoy!

    I made this today with the addition of a 1/4 tsp ground mustard and 1 tsp sea salt and it was SO, SO good. I don’t think I’ll ever buy the packets again. My husband and 2 toddlers loved it too. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it would definitely not have been as good if I hadn’t added the salt. The salt is totally necessary, in my opinion.

    great recipe, I always use yogurt instead of sour creme, though and it works out great!

    Thanks for posting this… I can’t believe I bought the package Ranch mix; those days are long gone now.

    A great idea to make this dip even healthier and add a good dose of protein is to sub out half of the sour cream for cottage cheese. Just blend the two together in a blender before adding the seasoning. It will make the dip delicious and no one can ever guess what it is the dip!

    If you blend up some cooked white beans, even the canned ones, you can then mix the ranch mix in it for an even healthier version. The texture is a little different but the kids barely noticed!
