Remember the old commercial for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, where two people ran into each other and accidentally combined their respective chocolate and peanut butter snacks only to discover that the resulting combination was delicious? Well, Thomas Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing reminds me of that: A serendipitous blending of tangy tomato-vinegar barbecue sauce (the original Thomas Sauce) with traditional balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing, and the resulting combination tastes surprisingly delicious! With more body and substance than ordinary vinaigrettes, Thomas Dressing will coat and cling to your tossed salads, roasted or steamed vegetables, and anything else you toss with it. But Thomas Dressing is for much more than lettuces and veggies: The sweet & savory, perkily peppery tomato-vinegar flavors from the barbecue sauce work remarkably well with the balsamic vinegar and olive oil to create a wonderful marinade for seafood, meat and poultry that will penetrate without overpowering. If you like grilled portobello mushroom burgers, use Thomas Balsamic Vinaigrette to marinate the portobello caps for a couple of hours and then grill them to perfection, melting a slice of provolone or mozzarella cheese on top during the last couple of minute on the grill. Simply fabulous!
So if you're tired of your run-of-the-mill balsamic vinaigrettes and are ready to try something a little different to wake up your palate, give Thomas Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing a try. It's currently on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company online store. And if you happen to be watching your sodium intake, you'll be thrilled to know that Thomas Dressing is very low in sodium, with only 25mg per tablespoon!
