Why are North Dakotans so Obsessed with Ranch Dressing?

Thrillist recently published a story on why America is so obsessed with Ranch Dressing.


Before I moved to Bismarck, ranch dressing, from what I knew, was just that. A dressing people put on salad. Once I moved to Bismarck, I realized ranch dressing is more than a salad dressing. People put ranch on everything.

With this in mind, I used Facebook to ask you what you used ranch dressing for. These are some of the comments I received:

  • Sherrie Steinke Pretty much everything! A few examples: baked potato, dip fries/onion rings in ranch, dressing for my salad, dip my veggies in ranch, chicken, cheese sticks, etc.
  • Trisha Janko Chicken, pork chops, fries, baked potatoes, cauliflower, broccolli, carrots, pizza, cheese sticks, poppers. Do i need to go on? Lol. Ranch is the go to sauce
  • Marissa Ensz Potatoes, pizza, pizza rolls, sandwiches, all chicken, fries, burritos, cheeseburgers, honestly I put it on EVERYTHING!
  • Ashley Bercier The question should be “What do you NOT put ranch on?” 😉Ranch is a must have in this household!
  • Jordan Ziegler Hashbrowns, chicken nuggets, tomatoes, cucumbers, fries, mashed potatoes, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, hamburgers
  • Jennifer Repnow Popcorn
  • Angi Brown Pizza, mozzarella sticks, taco bites, jalapeno poppers
  • Kari Nehls Sweet potato fries
  • Kristi Ouhl Devitt Pretzels. I add dip,powder to cottage cheese, and my daughter loves ranch on her sandwich rather than miraklewhip
  • Sammy Ladee Ranch mashed potatoes….yummy my son loves them and us good….and everything else…

So, I guess the question should be, what do you NOT use ranch dressing on?

Dip away, enjoy your ranch dressing with everything!
