DIY Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix - You can skip the store-bought seasoning packets. This homemade version takes 5 min using ingredients you already have!

Because I am obsessed with the little Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing and Seasoning Mix packets that I use in all of my recipes, the most asked question is – Is there a substitute?

Sometimes certain ingredients aren’t readily available, or sometimes you want to make it from scratch. Either way, this version takes literally 5 minutes from start to finish, and should last just about 3 months stored in the fridge.

The ingredient list is also very short and the only thing that you may not have on hand is the dry buttermilk, but that can easily be purchased on Amazon.com. Other than that, you should be set. Toss it in a food processor and you’re done. And if you don’t have a processor on hand, you can mix it by hand.

See? Quick, easy and simple. Now you won’t ever need the seasoning packets!
