So good! I am on a special diet and was missing ranch so much. I just made this and sprinkled it on a rice casserole. It's perfect!

PUL Team - March 24, 2024, 8:31 p.m.

Yay we're so glad that the ranch mix was enjoyed, Sarah!

Nicole Mostofa - Feb. 20, 2024, 11:14 p.m.

Liked the wedges with this mix.

Aileen - Dec. 15, 2023, 1:32 a.m.

Very simple to make.

Nynke de Graaf - Dec. 11, 2023, 4:41 p.m.

The best! Love this!

Josselyn - Sept. 29, 2023, 1:43 a.m.

I like it so much¡

Elizabeth Carter, Florida - Sept. 4, 2023, 11:44 p.m.

Phenomenal. Cut thin french fried potatoes and sprinkled it on with EVOO like I watched you do with potato wedges. My picky family went gaga and asked for more!!! Thank you for the work you are doing to bring healthy food into our home.

PUL Team - Sept. 5, 2023, 7:13 a.m.

We're so happy your family enjoyed it, Elizabeth! Hugs to Florida 🤗

nickole & liliana - Sept. 3, 2023, 10:10 a.m.

Great for an added kick of flavour in dips and dressings!

Alex - Sept. 1, 2023, 12:50 a.m.

Been making this ranch mix for years now (a "ranch mix" isn't even a thing we're I live) and I can't live without it. I have a specific jar just for ir and I make sure I never run out of any of the spices so I always have this ranch mix on demand. It's incredibly tasty and goes well with so many recipes when you need a flavor boost. Thank you, Sadia! 🧡

PUL Team - Sept. 1, 2023, 7:05 p.m.

Woohoo! So happy to hear, Alex, thank you 🤗

I was interested to try this recipe for a chicken taco lunch + I had a dill spice just standing by that I didn’t know what to do with (since I’ve only used it for the PUL borscht soup recipe)… until I came across this recipe. I eyeballed the mixture and used fromage blanc. It was a success hit!! Everybody loved it with their chicken tacos… that there was barely any left for me to try.

Nynke - July 18, 2023, 11:04 a.m.

This is soooo good. I mixed it with some vegan creamchees! Delish! Next time I need to make more off this!

Viktorija - June 26, 2023, 11:01 p.m.

This is so good! Goes with so many things, next time I’ll need to triple the batch 😁

Jennifer Danel - June 20, 2023, 5:45 a.m.

Great to have in the spice cabinet ready to put on chick peas or in a pasta salad or
Dip! It’s a win!

Ewelina - May 4, 2023, 7:30 p.m.

Love it! I put it on anything and everything!

Martunia - March 27, 2023, 8:58 p.m.

A lovely versatile mix. ♥️

Roxy - March 24, 2023, 4:48 p.m.

AMAZING!!! that mix is just the best! I make a big batch and use it everywhere! mixing it with mayo or plain yogurt for a quick dip, coating veggies (potatoes, zucchini, pepper, carrots ...) before cooking in the oven. i use it when i do my "oil pasta", add it to salad, rice,... name it! ... Even in my popcorn.

PUL Team - March 24, 2023, 5:23 p.m.

Mmm thanks for all of the ideas, Roxy, we're so happy the recipe is being enjoyed 😃

Ameena - March 5, 2023, 4:27 p.m.

Hi PUL! Can I somehow use this to season tofu? Thanks

PUL Team - March 5, 2023, 11:10 p.m.

Hey Ameena, we love pairing our buffalo tofu strips (…) with a ranch dip that uses this mix (…). We haven't explored a tofu recipe that uses this spice mix otherwise though. We'll add it to our list of future recipe ideas. Let us know if you experiment with it 🤗

jeaniejanette - March 4, 2023, 9 p.m.

I think you should include instructions for using this recipe for dressing and dip. Or, did I miss those recipes?

PUL Team - March 5, 2023, 9:58 p.m.

Hey Jeaniejanette, we have a vegan ranch dip recipe here:… 🙂

Carlotta - Feb. 10, 2023, 9:49 a.m.

I LOVE this mix! I always make a huge batch and the spice mix is just sitting in my cupboard until I use it in dips and on veggies. Thanks so much for this recipe!

PUL Team - Feb. 10, 2023, 8:28 p.m.

Woohoo! So happy to hear, Carlotta, thank you 😃

Annina - Jan. 25, 2023, 6:42 p.m.

Love it, been using this for a few years now and it's just so good! Nice to have a cute jar handy for mixing with vegan mayo for dunking my sweet potato wedges in 😍

PUL Team - Jan. 26, 2023, 6:11 a.m.

So glad to hear, Annina!

KatieW - Jan. 20, 2023, 4:59 p.m.

This is a staple in our home ever since we tried it a few years ago! We just ran out and I’m eager to make more, it really is so versatile and goes with so much. My favorites are with the potato wedges and mixed with vegan Mayo. 😊

PUL Team - Jan. 20, 2023, 10:27 p.m.

We're so thrilled the recipe is being enjoyed, KatieW!

Devan - June 18, 2022, 1:09 a.m.

I've given this ranch mix as a gift the past two holiday seasons, and it has been a huge hit! I include a tag with the basic dip recipe and then send them a link to PUL so they can try all the variations and sample your other recipes as well! This is a very versatile seasoning mix, and it really does perfectly mimic that classic ranch flavor.

PUL Team - June 19, 2022, 2:25 a.m.

So kind of you to gift it, Devan, it means so much the spice mix is being enjoyed and shared. Thank you ✨

Erica - June 9, 2022, 7:17 p.m.

I love all the PUL spice mixes but this one is my favorite! I use this all the time when roasting chickpeas and potatoes. It's the perfect seasoning.

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 11:54 p.m.

Aw thanks for the incredible feedback, Erica, enjoy!

Nell - May 13, 2022, 7:43 p.m.

How much would I add to 1 cup of soy yogurt to make a dip?

PUL Team - May 15, 2022, 12:26 a.m.

Hey Nell, you could add as much to taste as desired! In case you're interested and haven't already seen yet, we also have a ranch dip recipe here… 😊

Tara - April 7, 2022, 6:43 a.m.

I can't do chives do you think dried tarragon might be a semi good substitute?
Plant based for 5 weeks ...your my hero and inspiration

PUL Team - April 8, 2022, 11:51 p.m.

Hey Tara, you can if desired. It may be beneficial to start with slightly less tarragon and add more to taste since tarragon tends to have a more distinct taste 😊

Amanda - Jan. 11, 2022, 2:02 a.m.

This is now a staple seasoning mix in my kitchen. No more store bought ranch dressing for me. I especially love this mix on my pasta.

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 3:57 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Amanda, we're so happy to hear!

Christine - Jan. 6, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

This ranch mix exceeded my expectations. My kids LOVE it on roasted potatoes and the "yummy dip" when I add it to mayo. I could eat this on a daily basis!

PUL Team - Jan. 6, 2022, 10:23 p.m.

Awe we're so glad it's being enjoyed by your little ones, Christine, thank you!

Salwa - Oct. 8, 2021, 4:50 p.m.

Absolutely love this ranch mix. Its so on point. My husband asks for it by name 😁

Linda - Sept. 9, 2021, 2:32 a.m.

Love this spice mix. I always have it ready to prepare the Vegan Ranch Dip with a salad or a meal. Yummy!

PUL Team - Sept. 11, 2021, 3:52 a.m.

So glad to hear, Linda! ✨

Josiane Bolduc - Aug. 6, 2021, 3:32 p.m.

The best spice mix ever!!

JannS - Aug. 2, 2021, 7:10 p.m.

You don't say what to mix it with to make dressing???

PUL Team - Aug. 5, 2021, 4:02 a.m.

Hello, JannS! This recipe is intended to be a spice mix, although you may be interested in our vegan ranch mayo dip…. Our sincerest apologies for any confusion. We hope you love the ranch dip if you give it a try 😊

Dre - July 30, 2021, 10:55 p.m.

This is my newest popcorn seasoning! I blitz it in a hand-held food grinder and it powders wonderfully!

PUL Team - Aug. 1, 2021, 8:52 a.m.

A lovely idea, Dre, thank you!

Samantha - July 8, 2021, 10:57 p.m.

I tried this a while back and I have kept it in the pantry ever since. It is great to sprinkle over chickpeas or kale chips or mix up with some cashew milk and vegan mayo to make ranch dressing!

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 2:18 p.m.

Mmm all lovely ideas! Thank you for sharing, Samantha 🤗

Gimena - July 8, 2021, 9:08 p.m.

I tried this for a holiday and since then it is part of our pantry - yummy!!!

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 5:54 p.m.

So good! Those excellent baked potatoes! It didn't last very long! 😂

PUL Team - June 6, 2021, 12:13 a.m.

Hehe we can relate to that! So thrilled you enjoyed this spice mix, Cris 😊

pranav (@prauav) - May 19, 2021, 5:01 p.m.

Love this! I would like to add, though, that the metric measurement for dried chives is listed as "0 grams" which may be a typo. Other than that great recipe! Thank you :)

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 8:44 p.m.

Hey Pranav, so glad you enjoyed the recipe! A tbsp of dried chives is around 0.2 grams so our algorithm automatically rounds it to 0. Thanks for bringing it to our attention though so we can aim to address it 😃
