What is your favorite salad dressing? Are you Italian all the way? Are you a thousand island fan? Maybe blue cheese? Even better are you a fan of the great Caesar? For me…I am a fan of all listed but my favorite go to is the good ole standby…ranch. There is just something so comforting about this good ole standby especially when its all homemade!!
Not only do I like it for ranch dressing but I am also a fan of it for dips, as a seasoning…really in any way possible. I have been known to use it on chicken or pork chops to add some herby goodness and also on some veggies to add some great flavor without any added fat or calories. Even better with this homemade version you know exactly whats in the mix so you don’t have to worry about extra sodium or strange things you can’t pronounce.
I tried several combos of dried herbs and seasonings before I finally settled on this combo. I had never used dried dill in anything before this seasoning mix and I have to say I have become quite the fan. It has a slight spicy quality that really helps bring all the flavors together with a great balance…I will definitely be finding other uses for this great dried herb.
Don’t worry though…if you don’t have all the herbs on hand, or don’t want to invest in all of them I completely understand. Use what you have, adding in and leaving out what you need, make adjustments as needed…just try to keep the total volume the same.
No more packets ever needed for a favorite seasoning combo…you can make it at home and have it on hand for all your favorite dressings, dips and things that need to be seasoned.
