"I will never have to buy premade dressing again. This is a perfect Ranch.

I read the previews and decided to omit the Paprika. YUM"

"I made this as gifts for friends and I have received several comments on how delicious it is. I really liked, but it does not taste exactly like the original ranch dressing. I think it is because of the paprika so you could use less of the paprika to achieve the flavor of your choice. Fun gift and quick and easy to do. Volunteer Field Editor"

"I add the herbs to organic heavy whipping cream to substitute for Buttermilk Ranch Dressing so it's kosher. Very tasty & easy."

"Made this for the Dip. Having the mix on hand is handy. This as a very nice flavour as previous poster says. Had many compliments on the taste. I plan on always having this mix on hand."

"This recipe has a more southwestern flavor to it than a traditional ranch, but the dressing had the tang and zest you would expect from a good ranch sauce."
