This recipe starts by making your own ranch seasoning, which is the base for this dressing and I highly recommend it! Ranch dressing at the grocery store is disgusting once you have made your own! I haven't bought ranch in over 10 years because I always have this seasoning on hand! It is so easy and the jar will last you a least a year! Another tip for the seasoning is to buy the spices and herbs in the bulk section of a grocery store as it will save you some major money!
Okay lets get into it!
Homemade Ranch Seasoning & Dressing
1/4 cup black pepper
1 cup dried parsley
1/2 cup garlic salt
2 tbs fine sea salt
1/4 cup garlic powder
1/2 cup onion powder
1/4 cup dill weed
1/2 tbsp hot paprika
Pour all the ingredients into a large mason jar with a lid, and shake it together to combine!
Dressing for 4:
1/2 cup avocado oil mayo
1/4 - 1/3 cup raw milk
1 - 1 1/2 tsp ranch seasoning
Measure out the mayo, add 1 tsp of seasoning, and start with 1/4 cup of milk and whisk together. See if the consistency is to your liking, and you can add a touch more milk if you want it thinner. Taste the dressing and if you like a more salty and strong flavor, add 1/2 tsp more seasoning.
Refrigerate at least 15-20 minutes before serving to let the flavor develop!
