    Does a recipe have to call for a full 1 oz package of the Hidden Valley Salad Dressing and Seasoning Mix for a recipe to meet contest rules. I can't find anything on the amount needed to be used.

    I am not a contest offical, but just another member like yourself. I have been in various RSC contests here since 2002, and I think the general concensus was that the ingredient must be integral to the recipe, i.e., your recipe would taste a bit different without it. In other words, you can't sprinkle on a pinch and get away with it as a required ingredient. There can also be issues just using a required ingredient as a bit of garnish.
    But how much is enough lies with the judges.
    My advice is to add enough that you do not question it. Because if you do, they might too.
    Good luck in the contest! icon_biggrin.gif
