Ingredients note: Great food is based on great ingredients. Our kitchen-made salad dressings are a case in point. People are always asking me for the "recipe" for my vinaigrette dressings. I have to tell them, "Good olive oil, good vinegar...mix to taste. Voila! Great dressings." I use 100% Arbequina olive oil from the Siurana appellation in northeastern Spain. Then I add a great vinegar - Sherry Vinegar from Jerez, Spain; Balsamic Vinegar from Modena, Italy; Champagne vinegar from France... These are all available in our store because we want you to be able to make great dressings at home, too.
