Our low sodium Ranch Seasoning Mix is a great low sodium spice blend to use when you want to decrease your intake of salt.
If you’re trying to decrease your sodium intake, you might be missing some of your favorite seasonings, so here is our dietitian approved blend, which can replace the pre-made packets or dressing from the grocery store. This is just the seasoning, however we have included the instructions on how to turn it in to a dip or dressing using the seasoning, milk, and mayo, sour cream, or Greek yogurt.
Try making the dip to go with your buffalo cauliflower, your chicken nuggets, your pizza, or your vegetables. Using dried herbs, this ranch seasoning mix can last about one year in an airtight container, but this is so delicious that it definitely won’t last a whole year!
You can use it for so many things beyond dip or dressing, though. Try to season your chicken with it, like this recipe, or add to roasted potatoes. The possibilities are truly endless, so get creative with it!
If you’re looking for other seasoning blends, we have a whole blog that includes 6 recipes, including this ranch mix. You can find that post here.
All 6 of the seasoning blends are salt-free, so if you need to watch your sodium intake, these are for you! The other five recipes are Greek seasoning, taco seasoning, Montreal steak seasoning, BBQ seasoning, and chili seasoning.
All six blends are delicious and are great to keep on hand, whether you are trying to lower you sodium intake or not.

I recently made this dressing, and it was very thin. Is it supposed to be like that? I love the spice mixture and have been looking for a recipe such as this, because I want to decrease my sodium intake.
Hi Jennifer, thank you so much for trying our recipe! We appreciate your feedback on our recipe, It shouldn’t be too watery, so we clarified the recipe above, we hope that helps!
Thank you for this recipe! Do you know how I could modify it to make fiesta ranch no / low sodium mix?
I’ve never done it before, but you could try to add some of our no salt taco seasonings to the ranch mix to make it more of a “fiesta ranch”! If you try it, let us know how it goes!
Is this equivalent to one dry packet ranch seasoning?
Great question. Our recipe makes double the amount of the low sodium ranch dressing mixture compared to a single packet of ranch dressing mix that you would typically purchase in the store. So you can substitute 1/2 of our recipe in place of a one ounce packet of ranch dressing mix.
The recipe calls for dill. Is this dill seed or dill weed?
Great question, it is dill weed. I will make sure that we clarify this on the recipe. Thanks and we hope you enjoy it!
