Close your eyes, breathe in deeply, now exhale slowly… That was easy, wasn’t it? Not for everyone…
An exquisitely set table with fine china, dazzling stemware and beautiful flowers – we create perfect settings for the perfect meal. We cook the finest cuts of meat, and imaginatively prepare potatoes as a mouth-watering side dish. We labor for hours over the most delectable dessert and believe we have the perfect meal. That may be true – however, there is one thing missing – a great salad.
It is my belief that no meal is complete without a wonderful course of salad. How do you prepare a salad that will tempt the stubborn ‘I hate vegetables’ types? You start with the freshest ingredients – crisp leafy greens, plump tomatoes, cucumbers or zucchini, sliced red onions and colorful peppers. Then you add the dressing. What should the dressing be? It depends on your taste. Some people prefer to make their own – oil and vinegar with spices added for flavor. There are those who will choose a flavored vinegar – either balsamic or tarragon. Others will choose a bottled dressing. There are many of those to choose from, so
where do you start?
Golding Farms (Golding Farms Foods, OU parve and Dairy) has an incredible line of salad dressing that will make all of your eaters happy. In our house we have had great success with the Creamy Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette. The tangy sweetness of real Vidalia onions adds a rich flavor to this dressing, which livens up any salad. There is also a full line of specialty mustards, soy sauces and steak sauces. All of the Golding Farms products can be found in your local supermarket or on the web at www.goldingfarmsfoods.com.
Above I have given you my idea of a great salad, however, I am sure many of you have wonderful recipes to share as well. Is there a salad you make that everyone loves? Share it with us. All recipes will be tested and the 10 best ones will be featured in a future column. Recipes will be accepted until January 30th, 2004 and the first 25 entries will receive a free gift.
