(NPR)   Americans are "floating in a pool" of ranch dressing. A delicious, delicious pool that goes great with everything from hot wings to pizza crust to french fries and is even better when mixed with ketchup   (npr.org) divider line 121

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4-1/2 cup of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
1-2 cloves of garlic
salt
pepper
pick an herb - i like rosemary
smidge of sugar (optional)

shake it up - goes great with just about every leafy green - i recommend cutting up lacinato kale and massaging it into the leaves, then tossing some parmesan on top

to mix it up a bit, add some grey poupon and/or substitute lemon juice w/some good balsamic. if you use balsamic, i love throwing some feta in whatever i'm mixing up.

Ranch is one of those substances that is awful in the richest kind of way.  Even better when you add bacon.

I like fat free Ranch, but I also drink skim milk so that might be some of it. Roundy's French Onion dip on pretzel chips is the shiat though. //Fatty, unrepentant as of now.
 
2014-04-01 10:47:16 PM
Screw bleu cheese with anything, that crap is awful. Wings shouldn't be dipped in another sauce, that's bs.
 
2014-04-01 10:48:36 PM
That horrible crap they sell in the bottles has no business being called ranch dressing. I don't know what the hell they do to it to give it a longer shelf life, but I'm sure it involves human sacrifice and black candles.

Make your own. There are many recipes out there.

If you don't have time (and sometimes I don't) at the very least, get the package dressing and one of these:

i.ebayimg.com

I use this handy shaker container even for my homemade version.

Excuse me, hot wings are calling me for some reason.
 
2014-04-01 10:50:34 PM
Ranch is colloquially known around my friends as "stripper sauce". I've yet to know a stripper that didn't dump that shiat on everything they eat (except for THAT).

I'm happy that NPR covered the ingredients of Kraft's "ranch" dressing.
This country's popular food brands are farking disgusting.

You'll forgive me if I don't value the advice of someone who drinks skim milk when it comes to delicious chunks of moldy fat.  Blue cheese on scorching hot wings is fantastic.

Whenever I cook my steaks well done, I slather it in steak sauce with a dabble of ranch and ketchup. Sofa king good.

I'm a total outlier. I'm American. I'm floating in nothing, other than maybe air? I don't particularly like ranch dressing, and typically avoid it. I've tried all variations in my years. I've had the commercially available brands, I've had various mixes, I've had made from scratch. Some of it is out right disgusting to me, some of it is palatable, but far from being preferred. Overall, it helps me understand those folks that find mayo to be gross. It also makes me understand cum pigs. If you don't know what that is, don't worry. Explore no further. You probably don't want to know what a cum pig is. Unless you're a closet cum pig. Nothing wrong with that, just not my cup of tea. If you are a cum pig or closet cum pig, feel free to do some research. Same with ranch dressing and mayo.

1/3 cup each mayonnaise, sour cream, and buttermilk
1/3 cup good blue cheese crumbles - I like Maytag blue or Roquefort
A tablespoon or so of lemon juice
A tablespoon plus a little more of either finely minced shallot or chive
A few grinds of fresh pepper or a pinch of good white pepper

Stir this together gently so that the crumbled cheese doesn't get destroyed. Then dress or dip to your hearts content. You can thank me later.

Ranch dressing is awesome but it can get kind of old so it's good to mix it up.  If I get fries I like to mix a bit of ranch dressing with the ketchup and a pizza joint near here has started giving people the option of hot ranch (I forget what they mix in but it's good).
I'm also the kind of person where if I am at a place where I fill my own drink it's Barq's root beer with a bit of Cherry Coke or Coca-Cola and if they've got Pepsi products it's Mountain Dew and iced tea or Dew mixed with random sodas (orange, fruit punch).  I don't have a soda fountain at home so when I can take advantage I do.
I also am amused at the hate that people have for people who like ranch; it's funny to me that they think that they are better than me because of their choice in salad dressing or dipping sauce.

Agreed.  Wings are easily the worst part of the bird and since I refuse to eat skin sort of a task to even eat for me.

Jokes on you, I don't eat ranch dressing or ketchup.   Not really a fan of condiments in general.

I don't eat ranch dressing often, but it's my go-to if I'm having a salad that's more meal size than appetizer size.

I live near the I-81 corridor, so more often than not, that's a crispy chicken salad from Sheetz, which is sometimes lunch. For the uninitiated, it's a few chicken strips diced over a salad. The ranch works perfectly.

Damn, now I'll have to get that for lunch tomorrow.

Smaller salads I just dash some pepper on and forget the dressing.

Man, I'd hit that with a bag of sugar, and follow the ants in.

1 gal 'Frank's Red Hot' Sauce

10 Lbs of salted butter

50 Lbs of chicken wings, soaked overnight in a brine, and then deep fried.

Melt butter, add sauce, smother chicken wings.

Disagreed.  Chicken wings can be a great part of the chicken in much the same way that baby back ribs can be a great part of the pig.

But, coming from Pizza Hut, covered in red dye #2, with fake ranch dressing?  Not so much.

Regular Mountain Dew is just too syrupy for a good single malt. Diet is the way to go.

Oh I am all about ranch dressing. On wings, chicken nuggets, burgers...I cook it into ground beef that I then put over pasta alfredo with broccoli.

Not in chips though. I cannot abide Cruel Rank Doritos.

Real ranch dressing is good.

That mass produced self-stable soybean oil based abomination they sell at the store is not.
