So much wholesome virtue packed into these fat free flavor enhancers, including all-natural and organic ingredients straight from the garden. I have to admit, we are fans of fat in dressings, which add body and fluidity in flavor. As straight dressings, these were a bit too sweet and sharp (in vinegar) for our tastes, but as marinades and an ingredient, they added some delicious punch.

Every once in a while, you come across one of those gems at a food show – a small company with vibrant owners who are showcasing gorgeous, colorful products that are made with all-natural ingredients. Victoria’s Garden Grown was one of those “impossible to resist” delights.

Victoria's Garden Grown Dressings and Marinades

Full as my belly was, I didn’t get the chance to taste Victoria’s Garden Grown Dressings and Marinades at Expo West earlier this year, but they were kind enough to send me some samples for tasting.

Each variety of Victoria’s Garden Grown is made with all natural and many organic ingredients that, yes, you guessed it, come straight from the garden. They are naturally dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and pretty much top allergen-free, as they use just vegetables, spices, natural seasonings, cane sugar, citric acid for preserving, and a touch of xanthan gum for thickening since¬†Victoria’s Garden Grown Dressings and Marinades are also virtually fat free! Yes, just 15 to 20 calories per 2 tablespoon serving, no fat, and because they are made with real veggies, each serving is a good source of beta carotene!

Victoria’s Garden Grown Dressings and Marinades are even a touch chunky (you can see the little bits of carrots below), and work great as quick marinades (they contain vinegar) for tofu, chicken, etc. As dressings, I found them a bit too sharp in vinegar and a bit too sweet, particularly the Red Pepper Vinaigrette. My favorite for using in recipes was the Sweet Kale (it’s a great marinade and flavor component for sandwiches, salads, etc.) and the Beet Vinaigrette (not as “beety” as I expected), and on its own was the Carrot Ginger, which had the most depth of flavor.
