Ranch dressing powder

I had a giant container of Dan's Ranch from Costco that I really liked, and finally finished it.  I used it for ranch chicken, and recently I've been adding some to taco soup for extra fun flavor.  It is great stirred into some greek yogurt for a veggie dip.  I'm sure there are plenty of good uses for ranch!  Costco doesn't carry it anymore, so I looked up a recipe to make my own.  Ingredients cost barely over $1, and made about 25 servings.

10 saltines
3/4 cup dried parsley flakes
1/4 dried onion
1/4 cup onion powder
1/4 cup garlic powder
1 T dried dillweed

Pules saltines in the food processor until a powder.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until blended.  Keep in an airtight container.  1 tablespoon = 1 packet of ranch powder.

(This recipe isn't salted, and ranch seasoning is usually pretty salty, so salt recipes as needed.)

to make ranch dressing do you add 1 cup milk and 1 cup mayo like the directions on the store-bought powder?
