Homemade Ranch Dip Mix

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.
