The 10th of March is Ranch Dressing Day.
There are many bottled brands to choose from. You can also get powdered mixes that you mix up at home.
Or, you could use today to make up your own DIY powdered ranch mix (check the recipe ahead of time to be sure you have the component ingredients in the house).

You could of course enjoy ranch dressing on a salad, today.
You could also experiment today with using ranch dressing as an ingredient in dishes other than salads, for instance as a baking sauce on meat such as pork chops or chicken.
The day is recognized by the most famous brands of ranch dressing, which is Hidden Valley® Ranch Dressing.
They have posted a slew of recipe ideas on YouTube:

The first mention in print that CooksInfo has found of a Ranch Dressing Day dates from 2015:
“March 10 – National Ranch Dressing Day. Hoosiers love their ranch dressing.” — Dickey, Kelly. Food for thought: March is full of national food holidays. Anderson, Indiana: Anderson Herald Bulletin. 4 March 2015. Page A6, col. 2.
Hidden Valley in years past has offered various prizes and incentives. In 2018, the Hidden Valley company held a draw for a bejewelled bottle of ranch dressing, to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
