Today is a day to celebrate the best condiment on the planet!

In case you didn't know, March 10th is also known as National Ranch Day, as in ranch dressing. If you're not a fan of ranch, then you probably want to stop reading now, because this article is basically my love letter to ranch.

Growing up in the Midwest, ranch was always a staple in our household. But, I didn't always love it as much as I do now. Throughout my entire childhood, I thought it was so weird that my neighbors put ranch on their pizza. It wasn't until later on in life that I discovered what I was missing.

Pizza isn't the only food that tastes better with ranch! I really don't think I can eat a vegetable without it. Here are some of my other favorite things to eat with ranch dressing:

  • Fries
  • Pizza
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Mozzarella Sticks/Cheese Curds/Cheese Balls/Cheese Wontons/Mac & Cheese Bites
  • Salad
  • Wings
  • Jalapeno Poppers
  • ...ok, pretty much EVERY fried food

I would also like to note that I am not a fan of bottled ranch. It'll use when I have no other options, but homemade ranch is always SO much better. I don't like when ranch is thick and gloppy, I prefer it thin and a little runny. Sometimes when I go out to a restaurant, if there's extra ranch on the table, I'll take it home with me. EVEN if I don't have any leftovers to bring home. Go ahead and judge me! It's delicious and I have no shame.

Happy National Ranch Day, fellow ranch-lovers! Have a delicious day!
