Looks like there’s some mayonnaise in there…

The recipe for Ranch is anything but a secret.

Ranch is the most popular salad dressing in America — a position it has held since 1992 — and its versatility as a sauce makes it an ideal dip for everything from wings to pizza crusts (if you should feel so inspired). It actually has a pretty interesting history, too.

It was first whipped up by a plumbing contractor named Steve Henson in the early 1950s, and a few years later he and his wife, Gayle, opened a dude ranch near Santa Barbara, California, that you may have heard of: Hidden Valley Ranch. Guests were served the concoction, and it was such a big hit that the Hensons began selling it to take home, both as the dressing itself and as seasoning packets to be mixed with mayonnaise and buttermilk. Eventually, the duo formed Hidden Valley Ranch Food Products, Inc. and opened a factory. In 1972, they sold the company to Clorox, the current owner, for $8 million.

But what exactly is in this tangy, creamy sauce? According to a close approximation of the original recipe on Top Secret Recipes, it contains equal parts mayo and buttermilk, dried parsley, salt and pepper, MSG (flavor enhancer), garlic powder, onion powder, and thyme. It’s actually quite easy to make at home and is also infinitely customizable to your own tastes.


Now There's a Restaurant Dedicated to Ranch Dressing

There are two kinds of Americans: those who like ranch dressing (like, on everything!) and those who frankly fail to understand the appeal. A new St. Louis restaurant is designed exclusively for those who fall into the first category, taking the ubiquitous creamy condiment and rendering it even more so.

Twisted Ranch restaurant will soon swing open its doors in St. Louis’ historic Soulard neighborhood, offering diners a menu that includes 18 different flavors of ranch dressing — including garlic, horseradish, smoked paprika, tzatziki, cheesy bacon, chipotle and Thai — and features ranch dressing as an ingredient in essentially every single thing on the menu (except dessert, thank goodness).

“Our menu consists of some very traditional and classic favorites, but they will always be Twisted with Ranch,” co-owners Jim Hayden and Chad Allen, a big-time ranch fan, boast on the eatery’s website.

Hayden and Allen worked closely with chef Johnathan Tinker to develop dishes that include their special dry-ranch-mix seasoning, which factors into the panko breadcrumbs used in prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella, toasted ravioli and fried pickle chips, to name just a few of the restaurant’s ranch-inflected appetizers.

Entrees include garlic ranched beef tenderloin, homemade ranched meatloaf and chicken bloomin’ lasagna (chicken and bacon lasagna served in Parmesan ranch sauce). The kids’ menu, which, frankly, almost seems redundant, features ranched mac & cheese and ranch chicken nuggets. The full bar will offer a housemade ranch-infused vodka.

Why a ranch restaurant, you ask? “We’re trying to break away from the stigma of ranch dressing,” Allen explained to Feast Magazine, “in that people hear the words and think Hidden Valley.”
