Drew’s All Natural – Products Worth Reviewing

Being a vegetarian, I rely mostly on vegetables as a mainstay for my meals. I like to eat vegetables raw, stir-fried, baked, in soups, and pretty much any way possible. But mostly, I enjoy vegetables as a salad because of the raw factor and that you can drizzle any type of dressing you like on them. Sometimes I like to make my own dressings for my salads but when I don’t have the time or the necessary ingredients, I like to stick by my favorites like Drew’s All-Natural. Drew’s make a wonderful assortment of dressings and marinades for almost anything you can think of and they are made with all-natural and organic ingredients. In our household, Drew’s dressings have definitely become a favorite of ours mainly because they’re made with natural, high-quality ingredients and because simply, they taste fabulous.

You may have heard of Drew’s All-Natural. You can find their products pretty much everywhere. They also make salsas along with their dressings and marinades and their salsas are incredibly unique and fresh-tasting. You wouldn’t think salsas in a bottle would taste fresh, but with Drew’s salsas, they taste close to making them from scratch. And that’s because they are packed immediately into the bottles for the freshest taste possible. All of Drew’s products are considered gourmet and artisan because they were designed and originated by Chef Drew Starkweather himself, a renowned chef with many years of experience in the culinary industry. In fact, Drew’s All-Naturals dressings and marinades were the original creations from his earlier line of work in Deerfield, Massachusetts. When his friends and customers wanted more of his unique, personalized dressings, Chef Drew decided to start his own line of natural, gourmet dressings and marinades. Later, he added fresh salsas to his line of products.

One of the main reasons why we like Drew’s is that there are a great variety of flavors to choose from. We’re pretty picky when it comes to different flavors in our households. Each of us likes a different flavor and sometimes it can get quite daunting to find a flavor that my husband, son, and I will all enjoy and use. That’s why when I first discovered Drew’s dressings, I was immediately intrigued and tasted as many of their flavor profiles as possible. It was hard to narrow it down, but we do like their Organic Asian Ginger Dressing, Organic Peppercorn Ranch Dressing, and Lemon Goddess Dressing. The Organic Asian Ginger Dressing was slightly sweet with a bit of a kick to it and the Organic Peppercorn Ranch was amazingly creamy and not too spicy. The Lemon Goddess Dressing was tangy and lightly flavored with tahini and it worked well with salads and as a dip as well. In fact, with Drew’s dressings and marinades, they are created to be used as both dressings for salads and for marinating vegetables, meat, and seafood. Currently, Drew’s carries the following flavors and varieties: Rosemary Balsamic Salad Dressing,Thai Sesame Lime Salad Dressing, Romano Caesar Salad Dressing, Classic Italian Salad Dressing, Sesame Orange Salad Dressing, Roasted Garlic & Peppercorn Salad Dressing, Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing, Smoked Tomato Salad Dressing, Lemon Goddess Salad Dressing, Shiitake Ginger Salad Dressing, Greek Olive & Caper Salad Dressing, Soy Ginger Salad Dressing, Poppy Seed Salad Dressing, Raspberry Salad Dressing, Honey Dijon Salad Dressing, Organic Aged Balsamic Salad Dressing, Organic Peppercorn Ranch Salad Dressing, Organic Classic Caesar Salad Dressing, Organic Harvest French Salad Dressing, Organic Asian Ginger Salad Dressing, Organic Black Bean, Cilantro & Corn Medium Salsa, Organic Thick & Chunky Mild Salsa, Organic Thick & Chunky Medium Salsa, Organic Thick & Chunky Hot Salsa, Organic Double Fire Roasted Medium Salsa, and Organic Chipotle Lime Medium Salsa.

Drew’s All-Natural dressings and salsas can be found at most natural grocery stores. I really hope they start carrying them in regular mainstream supermarkets because their dressings and salsas really beat the conventional dressings and marinades. And with using only natural and organic ingredients, more people should be buying and eating the healthier versions. After all, if you can’t make salad dressing and salsas yourself, then you might as well buy them made with natural ingredients and ingredients that are unique and better for you. The good folks at Drew’s had sent me a variety of their products to try and we couldn’t stop eating them. My husband and I absolutely loved their salsas, especially the Organic Black Bean, Cilantro & Corn Salsa which is made with organic black beans, tomatoes, corn, onions, and chipotle peppers and yes, although it was spicy, it was incredibly addicting! My son and I love salads (yes, a little kid who loves fresh salads!) and he really enjoyed the Buttermilk Ranch Dressing as did I and we drizzled that thing on salads, used it as dips, and even ate it plain! I think if you’re going to start your young children on the benefits and enjoyment of fresh vegetables, then have them try it with some natural dressings. And since all of Drew’s products are made without any genetically modified ingredients or any use of artificial flavors and colors, then you can feel pretty good about having your kids try them too.
