  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix the buttermilk powder, dried onion, parsley, chives, salt, garlic powder, dried celery flakes, white pepper, paprika, and dill together, and store in a cool, dry place. For a finer texture, place ingredients in a blender and pulse several times.


  • Cook's Note
  • These ingredients are easy to play around with. If you like more salt, add more. I love garlic, but this amount might be too overpowering for some. I also like to add cayenne when I'm looking for a kick.
  • Editor's Note
  • To prepare the mix as salad dressing, whisk together in a mixing bowl with 2 cups of mayonnaise and 2 cups of milk until smooth.

To make Ranch Dressing I used 1/4 c. nonfat plain yogurt, 1/4 c. light Mayo and 1/4 c. skim milk. Mix with 2 T of the dry mix. Store in the fridge.

I tried 3 stores and couldn't find a source for buttermilk powder so I improvised by using low fat milk powder in the mix. When I made the dressing I used fat free Greek yogurt, low fat mayo an...

I'm so glad I finally found buttermilk powder! I probably quadrupled the dill, because I *knew* I'd want more and it's so good. I used some to make a buffalo chicken sandwich for lunch. YUM. I m...

I have been making this for a couple months and never have all the spices. I finally had them all to make as written and gotta say....I'm addicted. I mix with all nonfat plain yogurt and eat it ...
