Nanina's in Fields Corner [moved from Boston] I know it was a hole in the wall but I use to love this place...and most of all the salad dressing there. I would kill for the recipe or to find another place that has similiar dressing. It was so unique. Does anyone else remember this?

  1. I remember it. It was definitly a hidden gem.

    1. When I think of red sauce Italian, Nanina's was/is my benchmark. The owner of Nanina's has a son who is the chef/owner of Solstice in Kingston. I know they don't offer that dressing (mayonnaise based?) but give him a call. I've met him, he seems nice enough, and he may be willing to part with the recipe. Coincidently he had a receipe in the Herald today for baked Oysters, so maybe he's in a giving mood!

      1. I was given the recipe for Nanina's salad dressing today! I was feeling nostalgic and was looking around to see if I could find a recipe for their sauce.... YUM! Do you still want the recipe?

            Without giving away state secrets, could you describe it? Maybe the basic idea of the ingredients?

                    Hi Deb, is there any way I could get a copy of Nanina's salad dressing? I used to go there with my parents all the time when I was a kid and it would mean alot to my mom if I could make this for her. Any help would be appreciated.

                    Thank you

                        The person who claimed to have, but never shared the recipe, posted on this thread last December. It was the one and only time s/he posted on Chowhound, so don't get your hopes up.

                      2. re: Debfall

                        Loved this dressing...loved the fact that you could buy it by the bottles, and I did! Please send receipe...

                      3. Hi Debfall, I would LOVE to get the recipe. Would you mind sharing?
