Ranch Seasoning

Ranch Seasoning
Inspired by multiple Pinterest pins

1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Dried Onion Flakes
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
1 Tablespoon Dried Chives
1 Tablespoon Dill
2 Tablespoons Dried Parsley

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container until ready to use.  For Ranch dressing mix 2 Tablespoons seasoning mix with 1/3 each milk and sour cream.

This recipe is a gem.  You can use a tablespoon or two of the mix instead of using a packet of ranch seasoning that you got from the store.  I love it on roasted potatoes.  Just sprinkle on potatoes that have been drizzled lightly with oil and roast or sautee as usual.  How do you ranch???
