Okay, it sounds simple. And it is. But how many people pay premium prices for stuff that they could easily mix up on their own? My spice cupboard has everything I need for these. If I mix them up myself, then I have the convenience of the pre-mixed seasonings but without the things I don't like in the commercial mixes.
So here goes.
1/2 c. salt (sea salt, kosher flaked salt, or whatever fancy salt you want)
3 T. garlic powder
1 T. dried parsley
1 t. dried herbs, optional (if you want to fancy it up a bit, use oregano, marjoram, basil, thyme, rosemary, chives, or any of the green herbs)
Put everything in a shaker bottle. I just re-use the one already labeled "garlic salt" that I finished off a couple of years ago and keep re-filling. Shake it well. Store in a cool dry place.
If you like a finer grind on everything, put it through a small food processor or spice grinder.
Ranch Dip Mix
1/4 c. freeze-dried onions
1/4 c. dried parsley
2 T. garlic powder
2 T. salt
1 t. ground black pepper
1 t. dill weed
Mix everything in a small food processor or spice grinder. Store in an airtight container cool dry place.
1/2 c. sour cream
2 T. ranch dip mix
Mix together then refrigerate for an hour to let everything blend.
Dairy-free version: Use 1/2 c. mayonnaise instead of sour cream
Ranch Dressing: Make the dip and add 1/4 c. milk. Shake well.
