Specific amounts of each are in the recipe card below.
Can I Add Buttermilk?
A ranch seasoning packet usually contains buttermilk powder. You could add 2-3 tbsp of buttermilk powder to the mixture if you’d like.
Recommendation: Buttermilk Powder
Ranch Seasoning Without Dill:
Dill seems to be one of those who love it or hate it type herbs. I completely understand as I can only enjoy it in small doses. While the dill in this recipe is minimal and something I can tolerate, it can be completely omitted from the recipe.
How Much Is Equivalent To A Seasoning Packet?
In my experience, 3 tbsp of this mixture is equivalent to one packet of ranch seasoning.
How Long Will It Last?
Without buttermilk powder, it will last in an airtight container or jar for about 1 year.
