Never gone wrong with a TOH recipe and I enjoy salads at a minimum of 3 days a week. Always then trying new salad dressing recipes. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix is one of my favorites. I usually by the big container at Sams so I pretty much know what it should taste like. When I forgot it last shopping I thought it would be a great time to try this. What a disappointment. Taste nothing like Ranch, more of a dill type base salad dressing with a chalky cracker after taste. Not only that but the consistency is not right, very very thin. The only change I made was to half the recipe and I had all the ingredients on hand. Possibly I went wrong somewhere but I don't think so. My suggestion to you is if you are going to try it, cut it WAY down. Either that or email me, I will send you part of mine! I will be trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the dry mix due to this costly mistake.
Absolutely wonderful flavor! But way too salty. Will def make again without garlic and/or onion salt. I think the Saltines will give enough salt.
