Food Review: Drew's Roasted Garlic and Peppercorn Dressing
Since I'm getting in more salads lately, I wanted to have another dressing option. I had an idea that I wanted to like a Buffalo chicken salad so I was looking for a lower sodium ranch like dressing. I happened upon this and it seemed to fit the bill.
The nutritional info shows that while it is higher in fat, it's the beneficial fat and the sodium is very good especially for a ranch-like dressing. It's amazing it has no sugar!
I put 5 ounces of spring mix in a big bowl and used 2 tbsp of dressing and gave it a toss.
Unfortunately for that amount of roughage, two tbsp wasn't going to cut it so I added another 1/2 tbsp. As you can see, it looks like there's no dressing on it at all. It looks nothing like a Caesar or a typical ranch dressing like you see in restaurants because we're all kind of conditioned that if you can't see it, it's not there. I assure you, it was.
I took a bite and I immediately knew what was in there...balsamic vinegar. My nemesis. I guess I should've looked at the ingredients before I bought it. I just assumed it was ranch-like due to the consistency. It's not like it was gross but the balsamic flavor is too strong for me. So if you like balsamic, you're gonna love it. I know the Mr will finish it off no problem but I'll probably give it a pass. It's a great option for people who want a non-GMO, dairy free and vegan dressing.
Here's a peek at the ingredients: ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS: Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Cider Vinegar, Water, Dijon Mustard (Organic Grain Vinegar, Water, Mustard Seed, Salt, Spices, Turmeric), Roasted Garlic, Balsamic Vinegar, Garlic, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Oregano, Basil, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum, Sodium Alginate.
