As promised, here is the homemade ranch dressing mix that you can use on so many things! My mom has been making this for so long so I asked her if I could share it with you. Of course you can use it to make ranch dressing, or you can use it for these ranch pretzels, oyster crackers. You can also use it to add some pizzaz to chicken or pasta or pizza (think ranch blt pizza/pasta). Mom says it’s super easy to pull together and it keeps in an airtight container for up to a year!!
