My favorite salad dressing of all time is vanishing; it’s no longer available at HEB or at Central Market in
(The spices? Just right. Addictive, even. The sugar? Almost none…1 gram…just how I like it!)
The ingredient list exactly as it appears on the label: Vegetable oil (Soybean and/or Canola, Extra Virgin Olive Oil), Cider Vinegar, Water, Salt, Garlic, Contains 2% or less of Monosodium Glutamate (to enhance flavor), Spices, Propylene Glycol Alginate and Xanthan Gum (thickeners), Calcium Disodium EDTA to preserve freshness, Beta Carotene (color).
Now how am I going to reproduce THAT flavor at home? “Spices” hardly lets me know which ones, and where am I supposed to find calcium disodium or propylene glycol alginate? I don’t think HEB even has an algae aisle.
Well, all I can do now is contact Crowley & Shay’s Gourmet Foods, P.O. Box 849, Marlborough, MA, 01752 or call 1.800.318.3140 (on a Monday through Friday, 9-5 Eastern) to find out where this particular dressing is still available in Texas…or to see how much it is to order a case at a time!
Afraid that this dressing has gone the way of other great products from my past (Addams' Sour Apple gum and Gee! Your Hair Smells Terrific shampoo),
