Another Framingham salad dressing

December 16th, 2009

In addition  to Ken’s and Fanny’s dressing (which can be found next to each other at Stop& Shop),  Gerard Farm makes their own salad dressing too.
I just got around to trying yesterday and it has an interesting flavor, very sweet and I think it would go well on something like Napa cabbage salad.
Also, I’ve heard they will be closing (just for the season) at the end of the month, although there is no mention on their website of an exact date.
For more info on everything else Gerard Farm has, check out their site:

There’s a new salad dressing in town

September 15th, 2009

I love Fanny’s salad dressing and was surprised to find that La Cantina now offers a Balsamic Vinigrette version. I bought some and sent it to my sister in Oregon who is a devoted Fanny’s original fan and got a bottle for Ethan and I to try.
It’s great stuff. Since we bought it I haven’t used original at all, not that I won’t use it anymore but it’s very good. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a new salad dressing to give it a try. I’m guessing they offer it at La Cantina but I found it at Stop & Shop.

Local flavor

October 1st, 2008

I never really noticed but I wonder if Stop & Shop puts Fanny’s and Ken’snext to each other on the shelves because they’re both representing Framingham restaurants?
Somehow Fanny’s never tastes quite the same as when you get it at La Cantina but it is very good and it’s our “house dressing” we keep at home.  I used to love Ken’s Thousand Island (or as I’d call it, thousand calorie) but have laid off of it in recent years.  Occasionally when I’m in the mood,  I’ll get a bottle of their ranch dressing which is really good too.
