    This was good, to make on hand when needed. It's missing something that I can't put my finger on. I cut back the salt and changed it to kosher salt, as that's what other testers did as well. I also added 1/4 tsp. of ground red pepper, which gave it a bit of a kick. Using buttermilk is key when making this. I might keep experimenting. I plan on adding dill weed next time. EDITED 06/11/08: I added dill weed. That's what's missing. Much better with it.  -  10 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5, because per previous reviews, I halved the amount of salt, and I think that was the right decision. Instead of the 1 tsp of seasoned salt, I put in 1/4 tsp of seasoned salt, and 1/4 tsp of regular salt. That seemed to be just the right amount. I made this into a dip with 1/4 cup buttermilk, an 8 oz container of fat-free plain yogurt, and about 1/2 cup of light mayonnaise. It was very good!  -  22 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This stuff is wonderful. I don't use buttermilk, but I use milk and vineger as a substitue. Tastes just like restaurant style ranch. Yumo!  -  20 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
