You may have noticed that we sell very few brands of salad dressing by now. In fact, just two. This is not an oversight. Tait Farms, located just outside State College, PA, grows their own vegetables and herbs organically, and creates lovely, simple flavors for your salad needs. More locally, we have MOMO dressing, 3 genuine Japanese flavors that pack an intense punch.
Why do we have so few choices? Because dressing is so easy to make! We have a great array of oils, from California and Spanish, Greek and Italian olive, to hazelnut and walnut oils from France. Vinegars range from Canadian Apple Cider to Italian Balsamic, from Asian Rice to Spanish Rose Wine, each lending notes of light citrus and floral to intense, deep and earthy. With a few varieties, every night’s dressing can be unique.
Grab a jar or container with a tight light, add a few glugs of whichever oil and vinegar you fancy (3 parts oil, 1 part vinegar), a dollop of dijon or mayonnaise, salt and pepper, and if you want to get crazy, a squeeze of citrus, some chopped fresh herbs, shallots, garlic or even cooked bacon bits, close the lid, and shake, shake, shake! There are so many great recipes on the web, but with a well-stocked pantry and a little practice, you’ll be a master in no time!
