Get Ranchified at Rosedale Where the Ubiquitous Condiment Gets Its Due
11 Mar 2021
The Midwest’s beloved side kick, ranch dressing is receiving tribute through March and April in Rosedale Centers’s food hall Potluck. Vendors are all featuring signature items that utilize the dressing or spice blend with flair. The flexibility and room for innovation when you mix onion and garlic powder with herbs like dill, parsley, and chives are seemingly endless. Much like the current trend to put Everything Bagel Seasoning on literally anything, Potluck aims to prove the same is true for ranch. From a biscuit with ranch gravy to bacon ranch shake to a ranchy lobster roll, each vendor will feature a signature item with a zany twist.
Fun fact: the green-flecked buttermilk dip and dressing does not actually have Midwestern origins at all. Despite now being lovingly equated with our region, it was invented by a plumber-turned-cowboy named Steve Henson in California on a property called, you guessed it, Hidden Valley Ranch. Forty percent of Americans named ranch as their favorite dressing in a 2017 study.
