    Too bad this ranch mix recipe stopped so short. I would love to know how to turn it into one of the dips or dressings that were mentioned.

    It would be good added to mayonnaise, sour cream, heavy cream, vinegar, olive oil, or a combination of these. I think it would be to your own particular taste. For me, I've used ranch seasonings with mayo, cream, and buttermilk powder. I like it on salad, so like to keep it thin for pouring and may try adding olive oil to the mayo and cream next time.

    Sounds absolutely fantastic! Any suggestions on how to make the ranch dressing. Add the mix to sour cream and mayo? Perhaps adding some Parmesan cheese?
    Thanks!

    This mix is great with fresh fish and seafood.

    For shellfish (clams, mussels, etc), I first boil for a few minutes in 1/4 inch water, until shells open up. Then I discard water (get rid of sand, sediment, closed shells), add a few tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, one clove garlic minced, replace with more water 1/4 inch level, some white wine (approx 1/2 cup) and then this spice mix. Let cook for a few minutes until liquid comes to boil again and cooks for a few minutes, and then serve....absolutely amazingly good!

    For fish, fry a tablespoon of lard (or butter), add fish filet (skin side down), sprinkle this mix on top. Cook for a few minutes both sides. Drizzle with fresh lemon juice. Done! And delicious!

    The commercial dressing is about 1 ½ TBLS dry mix to 1 cup buttermilk and 1 C Mayo. I would start out there, and then taste to see if you need to add more of the seasoning mix.

    I used this to marinate chicken thighs in with olive oil before grilling, and as a seasoning for my burgers when camping this past weekend. It is so delicious! Tonight I am making the ranch dip for the radishes I just dug out of my garden.

    This is a great staple for the pantry! The ranch dip made with 2Tbsp of this, 1 c Mayo and 1/2 c sour cream is awesome!

    I make this ranch seasoning but i found it to be a little on the salty side.
