Did you know a Black man from Nebraska invented Ranch Dressing in the early 1960’s?
Steve (Kenneth) Henson had a dream of starting a dude ranch and opened Hidden Valley Ranch in the late 1950’s, but business wasn’t going great. However, guests loved the salad dressing he made and started asking for jars to take home. Soon it turned into a mail order business for Ranch seasoning packets. He sold the brand to Clorox in 1972 for $8 million.
Locally, Shreveport’s Harrice Daniels’ Simply Delicious Ranch Dressing brand continues to grow. Made with real buttermilk and fresh herbs and spices, learn where to shop this Shreveport favorite here.
