Craig's Dressing - Winter Roasted Vegetable Salad

Roasted vegetable salads are delicious any time of the year, especially with our Craig's Dressing. Dad's signature salad dressing, at the restaurant Sandi grew up in, accents the tomato flavors and the rich creaminess of the walnuts in his vinaigrette. We stayed true to his flavors in our dressing. An added benefit is that it only has 15 calories to a heaping tablespoon serving, 2 grams of sugar!

Lavender Pepper - Suggested Uses

Our Best Seller: How to use Lavender Pepper
We have not found anything that the Lavender Pepper has been put on or added to that the flavor was not improved. Start out with a little and then add more as you adjust your palate to the heat of the black pepper.
We suggest you let the Lavender Pepper rest on your food about 10 to 15 minutes. Add before cooking. This allows the French Grey Sea Salt to melt. The flavors penetrate into what you put it on.
