Now that I’ve lured you in, I want to share an amazing simple recipe I came up with today. Being that I’m in the works on our Louisiana Strawberry Vinaigrette, I have a lot of fresh strawberries laying around the house and I have to be a little creative. So, I took on the strawberry shortcake, using ingredients from our vinaigrette: Fresh strawberries, cane syrup, and poppy seeds — I have more of that than I know what to do with, our batch consists of over 40,000 local, fresh strawberries.
I’m back in the kitchen like a mad scientist perfecting the perfect batch, and my girls are the toughest food critics on the planet. If they like it, I know you will. But the style, and flavor profile is unique to everyone, so I wanted to have a vote.
I hand-craft and design each bottle from the ingredients, to the packaging/design, to bottling it. So this gives me the advantage of perfecting every aspect of the product from scratch to the store shelf. Now I can invite others to help me with that process — which I think is pretty cool.
My 4 year old randomly changed her favorite color from purple to blue and she wanted to know if I can make a blueberry salad dressing. So, as a bonus, imagine a Blueberry Vinaigrette similar to the Strawberry, but substituting the strawberries and pecans for blueberries and almonds.
It would mean a lot to me if you could take out 5 seconds and vote on the next salad dressing. The contest ends 1/27, two weeks from now and I’ll post back the results here.
Vote, share, ask questions in the comments — you guys are the ones that help decide on the next salad dressing. And I’ll let you know when I’m handing out free samples at the farmers market on 2/2/13 (in Baton Rouge) to try it.
