Packaged ranch dressing mix is so incredibly versatile. It's also loaded with salt and MSG. I've found a lot of copycat recipes, but most of them still have a lot of salt in them. Here's my version. When mixing up dressing or dip, let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving to let it thicken and allow the flavors time to come out.
