Make Ahead Monday: Salad Dressing Mixes

I know, it has been FOREVER since I have shared some make ahead monday ideas but I have had a few great recipe experiences lately that I just had to share with everyone.  Both of these I found out of necessity; wanting to make a recipe that called for these salad dressings but not wanting to run to the store to buy the actual salad dressing.  I needed Italian dressing and ranch dressing powder (you know the mix packet).  I had neither on hand but wondered if I could just make my own.  The recipes I found are FANTASTIC.
Here is the link to the ranch powder recipe  I made mine using powdered milk instead of powdered buttermilk and I liked the results just fine.
Here is the link to the Italian dressing mix  I love this.  I love the flavor much better than bottled Italian dressing.  Both of these recipes are great because you can make a big batch of the mix and then use it in small quantities as needed.  Just make sure your spice cupboard is stocked before you start making the mixes as they use a lot of spices/herbs.  These are well worth your money and time.

By the way I used both of these while making Cafe Rio Chicken:
