Happy St. Patricks Day pretty friends! We are going GREEN on the blog today by talking about my new favorite salad dressings- introducing T.Lish Salad and Marinades. I’m sure when you go the salad dressing section it can sometimes be, overwhelming. It seems like there are about 100 different ones to try! So how do you decide which salad dressing is best for you? One thing I look for is the sodium (salt) and carbohydrate (sugars) each dressing has. Some salad dressings have a tremendous amount of sodium, sugars, fats and even some ingredients you’ve never even heard about! That is why I’m so in love with T.Lish Salad dressings. They are all natural and only contain ingredients you recognize.
In January of 2006, Tiffany (founder) and her family moved to Birmingham, Alabama. Her husband bought a real estate business at the height of the market. For the next few years, she spent her time raising her boys and getting adjusted to a new city. Each Christmas, she would make dozens of mason jars filled with her signature dressing and marinade. Neighbors and friends went nuts over the secret sauce and began asking her to make it for them throughout the year! In December of 2009, times were tough, the real estate market looked as if it would never come back. Tiffany’s neighbor suggested she start selling her stuff at the Pants Store. Sounds strange but his store is the spot where everyone goes to buy the latest styles for their entire family. Bottles of the dressing started selling and word was spreading. In December of 2010, she sold over 1,700 jars. At this point she new she was onto something!
Three months later, the Western Supermarket called and asked if she would consider selling T.Lish Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette in their stores. After a lot of hard work and determination, T.Lish Vinaigrette launched onto grocery’s shelves, December 10, 2011. Within 10 days, her first batch was sold and it was time to reorder. This happened again within two weeks.
Tiffany is committed to making healthy food taste even better. With that commitment, her hope is to create a line of all natural and extremely versatile dressings, marinades and sauces.
One of my favorite ways to use T.Lish dressings is with mason jar salads. They are perfect because not only will they enhance the taste of your salad, but they also make it that much easier to create them. All you do is put a few tablespoons of your favorite T.Lish vinaigrette at the bottom and build your salad as usual. If you need a step by step recipe on how to build a mason jar salad click here.
My absolute favorite dressing is the T.Lish Asian Sesame vinaigrette. It is hands down the best sesame dressing I have ever had! It also works great for marinating meats like chicken to add to your Asian themed rice and noodle dishes.
