Dress ‘em up or down, we’ve got your delicate greens covered!July 18, 2012
Some prefer to make their own salad dressings; others rely on the tried and true organic bottled dressings to make their tossed salads extra yummy. Whichever way you roll, you might try our Grateful Harvest Organic Dressings in six flavors: Ranch, Balsamic Vinaigrette, Bleu Cheese, Sun Dried Tomato, Classic Caesar and Raspberry Vinaigrette.
Our favorite is the Classic Caesar, which has a creamy consistency and is only 130 calories for two teaspoons, which is enough to coat a single salad serving. A customer in our Wichita store swears by the Balsamic Vinaigrette. He only uses it as a steak marinade, but what the heck. If it works another way, great! “The acid in the dressing perfectly tenderizes a flank steak,” says Paul. “If you’re out of the Balsamic, I just use red wine vinegar and mustard and slather that over the meat.” Hmmmmm. Good to know.
It looks like Ranch is the best seller so far in our Kansas City store. You just can’t beat a good Ranch dressing. But why buy bottled in the first place? Isn’t all bottled dressing about the same? “No!” says a customer. “It’s hard to find a good bottled dressing anywhere,” says Jaime. “And even harder to find an all natural, organic one. My fridge is filled with half-empty bottles of dressings my family has decided it doesn’t like. I think the majority of them have too much salt and fat, and yet at the same time, somehow still manage to taste, well…tasteless. I’ve got five kids…none of them feel the same way about anything, much less salad dressing. So you see, I can’t buy one-size-fits-all. I’ve got to constantly have a variety of everything in the house!”
So Jaime has decided once again to try a new bottled dressing, and this time she’s going to try Grateful Harvest. We’ll have to wait for the sequel to find out how the dressing fared in Jaime’s household, but one thing for sure, if it’s Grateful Harvest, you know it’s healthy.
Grateful Harvest takes its all natural ingredients from premium, regional growers committed to providing artisan, organic produce and natural fresh foods from a conglomerate 100,000 acres of farmland under the Grateful Harvest label. Its philosophy: “In our business we are always most grateful for the harvest. It is not something we ever take for granted, nor do we underestimate its impact on our lives. Very few things in life can match the magic and mystery that occurs between a farmer and his land.”
GreenAcres understands the sentiment exactly. We can never take our customers or their preferences for any product for granted. If you’ve discovered something out there that’s healthy and nutritious and you want us to take a look at it and see what we think, we’re here to listen. In the meantime, when it comes to organic, bottled salad dressings, we’ve got you covered!
