We amp up our homemade easy ranch dressing with spices commonly used in blackening seasoning (smoked paprika, garlic and onion powders, and cayenne pepper). The result is a more robust version of the creamy sauce—perfect with chicken nuggets, on chicken sandwiches, or drizzled over a fresh salad. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
