Here is a homemade alternative to buying the packets of ranch dressing seasonings.  It's a lot cheaper and isn't full of preservatives!

1 c. dry buttermilk powder (found in the baking aisle with powdered milk)
2 T. dried parsley
2 t. dried minced onion
2 t. dill weed
2 t. garlic salt
2 t. garlic powder
2 t. onion powder
1 t. salt
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. pepper

Mix all ingredients in bowl until combined.  Store in the refrigerator (as well as extra powdered buttermilk).  3 Tbsp is equivalent to 1 packet of dry ranch seasoning.
