Ranch Dressing Mix

Classic, creamy, dreamy-this mix makes it easy to whip up some 
ranch dressing on demand, for tossing with salads, dipping with 
crudités, or soothing the fires of Buffalo wings.
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons dried
minced onion
1 tablespoon dried parsley, crumbled
2-1/2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1-1/2  teaspoons garlic powder

1.  In a small, airtight container, combine all the ingredients.  
Cover and shake vigorously to blend.

2.  Store in a cool, dry, dark place for up to 1 year.

Makes about 6 tablespoons

Ranch Dressing

To make a lower-fat version of this dressing, substitute fat-free 
mayonnaise for the regular mayonnaise.  Buttermilk is made from 
skim milk, so it is already low in fat and calories.  If you 
don't use buttermilk often, buy a box of dry buttermilk powder 
and simply make as much as you need when you need it.  If you'd 
like a thicker consistency for dipping, stir the Ranch Dressing 
Mix into 1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt.

1 container Ranch Dressing Mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttermilk

In a small, nonreactive bowl, whisk together all the ingredients 
until the dressing has a smooth, creamy consistency.

Makes about 2 cups
