• National Ranch Day is celebrated on March 10 every year
  • Ranch is one of the most popular dressings in the U.S.
  • Here's a list of ways to enjoy ranch to commemorate the day

After National Meatball Day comes National Ranch Day -- the holiday that celebrates one of Americans' favorite dressings.

Ranch is said to be one of the best-selling dressings in the U.S., and Canada, according to National Today. According to the outlet, 15 of the average of 38 salads Americans eat per year are Ranch-dressed salads. And in a 2017 survey, 40% of Americans also said ranch to be their favorite dressing.

But what is it that makes ranch such a fan favorite? Perhaps it's the zesty flavor or because it goes well with so many foods. What's more, there is a variety of ways it can be used apart from being a salad dressing or a dipping sauce.

To celebrate National Ranch Day, have a look at some of the ways you can enjoy ranch dressing:

Make Bread With Ranch

Adding ranch to a bread recipe may sound strange to some, but it actually works. Apart from a package of ranch dip mix, this "Easy Comfort Breakfast Bread" recipe from Hidden Valley also calls for cheese, green chiles, and even cooked sausage.

When baked together, this ranch-infused bread makes for a "comforting" savory breakfast.

Add It To Soups

If you're looking for a way to add a different flavor to your soup, why not try adding ranch to it? For instance, if you're having taco soup, adding dry ranch mix will not only add flavor to your soup but will also help make it a bit thicker, Allrecipes said.

Put It In Pasta

This recipe for Buffalo Ranch Chicken Pasta from Delish may be perfect for those who love pasta and the delicious combination of buffalo chicken and ranch dressing. As the name suggests, this recipe requires buffalo sauce, ranch seasoning, chicken, and pasta.

Together with butter, cream cheese, milk, and green onions, this recipe offers a new way of enjoying the tried-and-tested combination.

Make Ranch Scrambled Eggs

A quick and easy way to do add a new flavor to your morning eggs is to make ranch scrambled eggs. To make it, you simply need to add ranch mix to the usual combination of eggs, milk, butter, salt, and pepper.

Use It As A Marinade

Those who absolutely love ranch may try using it as a marinade, Allrecipes suggested. For instance, you may simply coat chicken in ranch dressing and let it sit for about 30 minutes before cooking it.

Another way to do this is by combining dry ranch dressing mix with Worcestershire sauce, mustard, vinegar, and olive oil to make a unique marinade for grilled meat or vegetables.

Make Ranch-Based Chili

Just like ranch, chili is also one of Americans' favorites. For the occasion, why not try combining the two to make a ranch-based chili? This recipe for Chicken Ranch Chili from Delish calls for ingredients such as shredded rotisserie chicken, sour cream, and ranch seasoning mix.

It may look a little different from the chili that we know, but it may be perfect for ranch-lovers everywhere.

Try Ranch Soda

Yes, this is real, and it was introduced by Lester's Fixins Soda, as per National Today. In fact, the company has also introduced other unique soda flavors such as bacon as well as peanut butter and jelly.

It may not sound as delicious as other ranch-infused recipes, but it's certainly a unique way to celebrate the occasion.
