When it comes to the best condiments, there are a few things to take into consideration, like taste, versatility, and ingredients.

2. Ranch Dressing
Salads, sandwiches, fries, chicken strips, there are a multitude of foods that ranch dressing improves on! Whether it's Hidden Valley or homemade, its blend of buttermilk, sour cream, herbs, and spices offers the palate an explosion of flavors! What's your house's favorite thing to enjoy with ranch?
It might not be much to look at, but mayo is a staple in many American households. It's made of up oil, egg yolks, vinegar or lemon juice, and herbs and spices. With a taste that some people have a hard time describing, mayo complements almost any sandwich; plus, it's an important ingredient in deviled eggs; chicken, tuna, potato, or egg salads; and much more.
We couldn't really do a list of top condiments without including ketchup. This tasty mixture of tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, and seasonings is a common topping on burgers, fries, and hot dogs. Want to add some flavor to baked beans, meatloaf, and sloppy Joes? Ketchup does the trick.
Do you know how many kinds of mustards there are? Yellow mustard, dijon mustard, spicy brown mustard, hot mustard, honey mustard. That's just a few! When it comes to variety, mustard may be the spice of life. The basic ingredients are mustard seeds (duh), water, salt, and a liquid. Top hot dogs, burgers, brats, pretzels, and cold cuts with your favorite mustard for just the right amount of spice, tanginess, or heat. It's also a great addition to macaroni and egg salads and deviled eggs. At College Chefs, our customized meal plans really cut the mustard.
