Reviews for Ranch Dressing Mix Plus
"This is VERY salty. Good basic recipe except I would reverse the amounts for the powders and the salts. ie...1/4 cup onion salt and 1/2 cup onion powder and the same for the garlic. Nice to have an option though since my husband cannot have regular ranch due to intolerance of MSG."
"This is a good basic recipe except it is very, very salty. Use garlic and onion powder instead of the salts, or just one of the salts."
