Easy to make and so much better than running to the store. Thanks for the recipe.

This has become the "Go-to" dressing in our home. The "Ranch" variety is our favorite. We serve it alone whenever a salad is involved. Guests have asked where we buy it, and "Why is it in a tub?" "Where's the bottle?" "Is this a secret?" We just smile and say "It's our own blend.." It seems to keep forever, and opens up a lot of space in our 'fridge door... Thank you, Ms Nancy!

Made the ranch dressing and it tastes just like the bottled dressing. I only needed 1/2 cup of dressing for another recipe and it was great to be able to make it up rather than having to buy an entire bottle.
