Ranch Style Dressing

I was hungry for chicken wings and didn't have my usual packet of ranch dressing mix. I decided to make up my own dip from what I had on hand in my rv. I have lots of spices and dried herbs so I just started mixing and tasting as I went. I like sour cream in a dip but didn't have any so I made quick buttermilk by mixing some lemon juice in regular milk. It came out great. I will never buy the packets again, at least I know what's in this and it's all natural stuff. This makes a great salad dressing, veggie dip, chip dip and hot wing dip.


 buttermilk or sour cream
 garlic powder
 shallot salt
 dried parsley
 dried chives
 optional; celery salt, onion powder, green onions, dill weed


Mix all ingredients to taste. You can use dried or fresh herbs, whatever you have on hand. You can also add things like celery salt, onion powder, green onions, dill weed, almost any herb or spice that you like. Start with small amounts and taste as you go. This is best made several hours ahead of time.

Serves: depends on how much you make.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
