      I know it sounds weird, but it really is delicious
      You can make fiesta ranch with it as well. It breaks down to about .11 per recipe

      How come the amounts in this recipe and your other hidden valley with fiesta are so different when mixing up? 1 T instead of 2 T. of mix and then 1 -1/4 cup sour cream to 1/4 c. milk and then 1 cup mayo and 1 cup buttermilk. Whats the differences? Thanks!

      2 different recipes/uses and consistency. We usually use this one GroceryBudget101.com- - Copycat Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing & Fiesta Ranch Mix | Copycat Recipes but it depends on what we have on hand for mixing it.

      For anyone who is very allergic to gluten here is the recipe I have to use:
      2 Tablespoons each:
      Dill
      Parsley
      chives
      4 Tbls. onion powder
      2-3 tsp. pepper
      1-4 tsp salt (I use Real Salt)
      1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
      (All ingredients are dried)

      Mix and shake well in a small glass jar (8 oz. works well) and store at room temperature.
      To Make dressing:
      Shake well before measuring. Stir about 1 1/2 to 2 tsp. dry mix into 1 cup or any combination of the following: buttermilk, mayo, or sour cream. (I prefer half mayo and half buttermilk but my friend prefers sour cream)
      You can add a minced clove of garlic or a splash of red wine vinegar to finish it off.

      If you don't use fresh garlic you can add 1 Tbls of garlic powder right into the original mix when you make it up.

      Yours sound awesome but I'm so very allergic to gluten now so I had to come up with something that works great for us.

      Has anyone ever used their homemade yogurt to make this mix?
