No MSG, fillers, preservatives or other yucky stuff in here! This is the best mix recipe I've found that comes close to that "Hidden Valley" taste. Use at least 1 tablespoon of mix per 1 cup of cultured sour cream to make a healthy (probiotic!) dip for your raw, organic veggies. Or use about 2 tablespoons of the mix when a recipe calls for a 1 oz. packet of ranch dip mix.
1 1/2 T. parsley flakes
1/2 T. dried chives
1/4 T. dried tarragon
1/4 T. lemon peel
1/4 T. pepper
1 T. sea salt
1/4 T. dried oregano
1/2 T. garlic powder
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
