    I absolutely love the ranch sauce at Red Robin restaurants--but can't find a "copycat" recipe for it anywhere! Does anyone know what the secret ingredient could be, or have a recipe for it? Thanks!

    I don't have the recipe but I know they mix their spice with ranch dressing. I asked if they sold their spice mix and they said yes for 3 or 4 bucks but since I asked so nice they gave me a free container icon_lol.gif

    By the way, spices listed on Red Robin seasoning are:
    salt, paprika and other spices, dextrose, dehydrated garlic and onion, autolyzed yeast, dehydrated tomato, hydrolyzed soy protein (caramel color), natural flavors. Contains Soy.

    This old thread might interest you ~ Red Robin Campfire Sauce

    Top Secret Recipes has a clone of Red Robin seasoning in the newest cookbook so it might be on their website ~ I have a feeling some of that goes in the sauce, too.

    aha! This really does lead me in a different direction. I know the spice seasoning that the both of you are talking about, but I just didn't guess that, since it's a reddish color, and the ranch always looks pretty solidly white. I will try this very soon and see what I come up with icon_smile.gif Thank you!

    I have found what is not quite red robin ranch (very close), but it is very good. Much better than any bottled ranch at the grocery store. Look for a ranch mix at the store called Uncle Dan's and just mix it according to package instructions. www.uncledans.com I found it at my local Safeway.

    Here is a zaar recipe for their seasoning: Copycat Red Robin Seasoning, maybe try mixing it with some storebought ranch, and go from there.

    We love Uncle Dan's. I live in KS now and have my family in WA send me some every couple months.

    Your Very welcome, I just made the recipe, just now! I added 16 oz of buttermilk instead of the sour cream. The waitress told me this recipe because I just kept ordering it. I hope you enjoy it and I will post after I try it. Enjoy!

    buttermilk is close but not on the money. Do 16oz of buttermilk, 1 cup of mayo (best foods or hellmans, not the light!) and 3 to 4 tbsp's of the red robin seasoning. Mix all together with the Hidden Valley powder (do not get the buttermilk powder!) Chill it for a few hours and then try it. Pretty darn close! You can add more RR seasoning if you feel it is needed at this time.

    Enjoy!

    i know this is an older topic but its a common answer the same question online. red robins ranch is my fav. i haven't found a bottle or recipe that comes close, incld these. the reason they dont work is because of the use of buttermilk or mayo (real or mw) or any combination of them. buttermilk gives a tangy flavor. mayo gives a butter flavor. neither of which is part of the RR ranch flavor. i tried ALL the variations n came up with the same conclusion... not it.

    so... here is the recipe that is the exact flavor (or at least close).

    1 pkg ranch dressing mix (preferably not HV- i like Kroger brand)
    2cups heavy whipping cream.
    1 tsp RR seasoning (add more for your preference)

    if u have a great recipe for the mix, use that instead of the pkg stuff.

    thats it!
    if u want some more thickness, add sour cream (not mayo or MW). this will changes the consistency without changing the flavor.

    This is what I just found about the Ranch dressing served with this chicken salad at Red Robin Restaurant:

    MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN SALAD - RED ROBIN COPYCAT RECIPE -
    SALAD: Crisp romaine lettuce tossed with lemon dill ranch dressing, topped with an oregano grilled chicken breast, crumbled Feta cheese, fresh cucumbers, black olives and diced tomatoes. Served with warm garlic focaccia bread.

    FOR THE CHICKEN: Marinate chicken breast in Italian salad dressing and grill until done. Allow the meat to rest to distribute the juices.

    FIXING THE SALAD: Make a bed of lettuce and add all the ingredients listed above. Slice the chicken and top with the modified ranch dressing:

    FOR THE DRESSING: Add a bit of lemon juice and dill weed to about a half a cup of bottled ranch dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning according to taste.

    FOR SOUTHWEST RANCH DRESSING: Add taco seasoning mix to bottled ranch dressing.

    CHIPOTLE MAYO: 1 cup mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons minced canned chipotle, 2 teaspoons of sauce from chipotle can. This is all the rage in the restaurants.

    RED ROBIN SEASONING BLEND - RED ROBIN COPYCAT RECIPE -
    Ingredients:
    3 tablespoons salt
    1 tablespoon dry spaghetti sauce mix
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dried sweet basil
    1/4 teaspoon cumin
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    Mix all ingredients together, store any unused seasoning in an air tight container.
