Great for large parties as this does make a lot! I used Hellman's light mayo (about a cup) and reduced fat sour cream (about a cup and a half) as I wanted more of the "ranch" flavor. It was perfect for assorted veggies crackers and chips for dipping. Read More

This is OK but the flavor is too bland as written. I like using the mayo/sour cream combo--it tastes good with veggies or chips; however next time I will use only 8 oz mayo and 8 oz sour cream to one packet of ranch mix. Read More

I make this a lot as a dip for french fries. I add a tsp. of horseradish for kick and sometimes a couple tsp. of bacon bits. It's great. Try it with your own homemade ranch dressing mix. It's even better. Read More

This is great subtitute for SOUR CREAM & ONION CHIP DIP. I used Dukes lite mayo and reduced fat sour cream and it gave the perfect consistency. I didn't use a full 16 oz of each just (equal amount of each) to the amount I needed as dictated in the recipe. Then added the ranch dressing powder to taste in about the same scale as the recipe. So very quick and easy! Read More
