Nothing Says Yummy More Than Ranch!
Slow cooker cooking is all about simple around here. Yeah every once in a while I’ll do something a bit “more” but usually not so much. Don’t get me wrong, we eat our veggies and prefer to eat healthy(ish) more than not BUT it’s not always easy. A lot of days it’s the choice of takeout or quick and easy… I’ll take quick & easy any day over fast food. AND that being said…nothing says yummy around here more than these ranch dressing recipes. Well, maybe bacon does too but if we’re gonna do a bit of healthy we can’t have bacon every meal. Sad isn’t it…
You Can Even Make Your Own Mix
Also, if you have the time and the desire, you can also make your own ranch dressing mix. I’ve made it before and it isn’t difficult at all. All you need to do is follow this recipe:
- 2/3 cup buttermilk powder
- 2 teaspoons Himalayan Pink Salt
- ¼ cup dried Chives
- ¼ cup dried Parsley
- 2 tablespoons Garlic Powder
- 2 tablespoons Onion Powder
- 2 tablespoons Dried Onion, Minced (optional)
- 2 teaspoons Black Pepper, Ground
- 2 teaspoons Dill Weed
- 4 packets True Lemon
- 2 teaspoons dried Tarragon
Toss all that in a blender and pulse ‘til it’s completely powdery. 2 tablespoons of the mix equals a packet.
You can even store it in a jar for about a month before it starts to clump up. It’ll still be good to use after it starts clumping, just more difficult to work with.
Whether you decide to make up your own or buy the big canister as the store, it’s an awesome investment. Check out all these yummy recipes…
