Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix Recipe (2024)

Homemade ranch seasoning makes a great seasoning to keep on hand for ranch dressing, dips, chips, and more!

Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix Recipe (1)

My family loves ranch dressing. Well, let me just admit that I probably love it more than anyone else in the family, but you get the point.

I could eat it on just about anything – from salads, vegetables, to dipping my fries into it, it is one of my favorite condiments. For years, I’ve been making my own buttermilk ranch dressing using fresh herbs and have also kept a little jar of my ranch seasoning mix in a little jar on standby for those days when fresh herbs weren’t available.

Through this winter, I’d depleted my little stash of ranch seasoning mix and yesterday, as I was blending up a new jar, I knew I wanted to share with you just how easy it is to make yourself. It is definitely a pantry staple at my house and so much better than those packets you can buy.

How to Make Homemade Ranch Seasoning

My homemade seasoning mix uses dried herbs and spices that you probably already have in your pantry. By using the dried herbs and spices, your seasoning mix will be pantry stable so that you can quickly add it to all sorts of recipes for dips, dressings, and to add flavor to any number of dishes!

What are the Ingredients in Ranch Seasoning?

My homemade ranch seasoning mix only uses six ingredients.

  • dried parsley
  • dried dill weed
  • granulated garlic
  • granulated onion
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper

You’ll notice that all of the ingredients are of different sizes and textures.

The finer textured ingredients in the mix – like the salt and garlic – generally settlesto the bottom of the bottle. To make sure that my mix stays mixed consistently, I add all of the ingredients into my spice grinder and pulse about five times to make it more consistent. You can also use a food processor or blender if you don’t have spice grinder handy.

It stays perfectly combined and ready to use!

You can also skip that step if you prefer and make sure to whisk your seasoning mix with a fork before use if it settles.

How Long Does Ranch Seasoning Mix Last?

Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix is shelf stable for up to a year, depending on the age of your dried herbs and spices. In other words, the fresher the herbs and spices that you use in your mix, the longer it will last. I like to refresh my ranch seasoning supply at least every six months, if it has even lasted that long in my pantry!

If you do not plan to use this mix very often, you can absolutely cut the recipe in half to make a smaller amount and if you are like me, you can easily increase it as well!
