I experimented making the dry version like the packets. I looked at my dry buttermilk and decided that 2 Tb and the rest of the dry ingredients would make this in packet form for other recipes. It turned out perfect! It even weighed about 1 oz, which is what the packets weigh, so I am happy with my experiment!

I tried this recipe after my local store was out of stock of the seasoning packets. Wow, this is so good and so much cheaper than buying the packets or jars of seasoning. I will never buy it again.

This taste exactly like the package which i love. I don't like the bottle h.v. ranch.

Made as written except that I added a scant 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum and POOF! Unless you have access to a really rich buttermilk, xantham creates the perfect consistency.

I used to work at HVR many years ago and I can attest that this recipe is authentic. Except -- no thyme or dill. Just salt, msg, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and artificial parsely flakes -- sorry home cooks, you'll have to sub real parsley flakes, but make sure to break them up into small pieces. Just follow Steve's measurements and you'll have the real thing for a fraction of the price -- and you don't have to make up a whole quart at a time either.

This was a dream come true. I rate it a big 5 stars. This is the best copycat recipe I have ever found that actually tasted like the real product. Thanks so much. Keep them coming.

This recipe is good, but the pepper should be white pepper, not black pepper...also requires dill.

This is the best recipe we have found that even comes close to Hidden Valley and tastewise it's right on the money! Those who say it's too salty or too peppery must not be reading the directions correctly.

I made this over the weekend and my son who is known as the Ranch dressing King loved it!! We will never buy bottled dressing again.
