Homemade ranch tastes better than store-bought, and this ranch recipe is delicious! A simple DIY recipe tutorial idea! A top pinned post on Pinterest!
Over a year ago I shared The Best Homemade Ranch Recipe. This has been and is my favorite ranch recipe. I was quickly amazed at how popular this post became. This recipe has been pinned 73,931 times! Isn’t that crazy?! With the popularity of that post, I have been asked many questions and one of the biggest being if I had a smaller portion recipe. So I thought since it has been pinned that many times, that was the least I could do.
I bought all of my ingredients bulk. I think bulk spices are so much cheaper than buying them pre-packed or bottled. I also purchased a Plastic Spice Bottle to store my Ranch mix in once it was made.

For the dry ranch mix you will need:
- 1/2 TBS Black Pepper
- 2 1/2 TBS Parsley Flakes
- 1 TBS Garlic Salt
- 3/4 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1/2 TBS Garlic Powder
- 1 1/2 TBS onion powder
- 3/4 tsp Dill Weed
How to Make a Smaller Portion Best Homemade Ranch Recipe
Pour each of the ingredients directly into the Spice Bottle and then shake the container to mix. That is all there is to it!
I have used this dry mix in all sorts of recipes that call for dry ranch mix from the packets, but my favorite and most common use is to make Ranch Dressing.
For the smaller portion of Ranch Dressing mix:
- 1 TBS dry mix
- 1 cup mayo
- 1 cup cultured low-fat buttermilk
- 3/4 cup light sour cream
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
To store the ranch dressing, I pour it into a Rubbermaid 2 Quart Bottle. The only difference between this recipe and the original is this recipe makes 6 Tablespoons of Dry Ranch Mix and the original makes 36 Tablespoons.
We go through a lot of ranch at our house and I make Ranch Dressing close to once a week so I make the full portion Ranch mix. To see the full portion recipe go to my original The Best Homemade Ranch Recipe post.
