Ranch makes everything taste good! I'm so glad I found this idea from the $5 Dinner Mom, because it's a healthier alternative to the store-bought Ranch salad dressing or packaged dips. Mix up a big batch of the spice and have it ready for anytime you need a little help to get your kids to eat their veggies.

Ranch Flavored Dip from 100 Days of Real Food

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 at 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.

Here’s a little video showing you how simple it is to make! Enjoy!

    I use plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and add just a little touch of season salt. SO GOOD! I am very excited to have found this!

    This stuff is great and very easy to “tweek” to your liking. I make it with ” Johnies Garlic Bread Seasoning from Costco, dried chives and I add it to tast to plain Greek yogurt mixed with Mexican table sour cream ( thinner ) until it has a taste and “dip ability” that I like. I use it as a veggie dip and salad dressing ( dipped on my fork).

  3. I thought it needed a bit of salt flavor, so I used garlic salt instead of garlic. Also we did not have any basil in the house (gasp!) so I added freeze dried chives. It tasted great! As a side note, we can’t have mayo based dips in the house since I have a kiddo allergic to eggs. So sour cream dips are perfect for us. :-)

  4. I make something similar, only I add about 1/4 cup of milk kefir. This adds a really nice tang to it.

    1. oh, sounds like a great way to use kefir! I am assuming you use it instead of the sour cream?

  5. Would this work to use only mayo as the base? I am unable to have yogurt, sour cream, or buttermilk.

      Hi Melanie. That is not something we’ve tried. You might also consider a plain non-dairy yogurt.

    1. I make ranch dip like this one with Fage and it’s awesome, just a little thicker than sour cream. You can add a little bit of olive oil if you want it thinner.

  6. I do something similar, but I use 1/2 mayo like one commenter did…and I mix the seasonings in with the mayo. It stores in the fridge for months, and the flavours are already fully developed in the mayo, so you just add 1 part mayo/seasoning mix to one part sour cream/yogurt/milk and you’re ready to go!
