The J. L. Kraft Collection

Provincial French Vinaigrette

This is simple, yet classic dressing which makes the most of the flavours of garlic, mustard seed and herbs. It’s perfect with fresh leafy greens or simply drizzled across steamed beans, artichokes or asparagus. It also makes a great marinade for chicken or seafood.


Balsamic and Garlic Vinaigrette

Combining the complex yet sweet taste of balsamic vinegar with a hint of garlic, this is a dressing with real zest. The perfect accompaniment to char grilled vegetables, leafy greens, pasta, and rice, it also doubles as a marinade for beef, lamb, chicken and even baby octopus. Or, do as they do in the Mediterranean and use it as a dip for your crusty bread.


Traditional Italian Vinaigrette

Bring the fresh, tangy taste of Italy to your table with this versatile dressing. Combining smooth extra virgin olive oil with the tang of red pepper and fresh herbs, it’s perfect for leafy greens, grilled vegetables, pasta or to just simply dip your bread into. And for something a little more special use it as a marinade for red meat or poultry.


Seeded Mustard and Honey

We’ve combined the sweet taste of honey with the tang of seeded mustard to create this rich, creamy dressing. While simply delicious with leafy greens and roasted vegetables (in particular carrots, beets and parsnips), it’s also the perfect alternative to mayonnaise to finish a beautiful potato salad. Also, why not try it at your next barbeque as a sauce to the meat.


Creamy Homestyle Caesar

For the ultimate Caesar salad, go no further than this delicious dressing that will bring the rich, sharp taste of Parmesan cheese to every last leaf. But there’s a lot more to it than that, it also makes a superb alternative to mayonnaise in potato or pasta salads, and it’s perfect as a dipping sauce for potato wedges or even simply drizzled over roast vegetables, crumbed chicken or fish.
