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. We also love this Swiss Cheese Dip!
Quick and Easy Homemade Ranch Dip Recipe
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! You could even prepare them ahead of time in separate bags or containers to mix up once you’re ready.
A Sour Cream Ranch Dip for Everyone
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.
This gives it a thicker consistency overall, making it a perfect dip for veggie trays that the whole family will enjoy. It’s a lot cheaper than pre bought spice mixes and easily more nutritious than the bottled stuff. No preservatives here! Just a few simple ingredients that make for a fresh and easy to make dip.
How to Reduce the Fat Content of This Dip Recipe
If you want to save on calories and dollars at the same time, there’s an incredibly easy substitution you can make here! Greek yogurt doesn’t just add substantial protein content to the mix, but is slightly less calorie dense than cream cheese. (Some people may prefer the flavor, too!)
To use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, simply swap the sour cream in the ranch dip recipe below for equal parts Greek yogurt.
Here’s a little video showing you how simple it is to make! Enjoy!
