Salad Dressings

  • s

This may have been covered, but where do you dine out in the LA area and its suburbs and say, "They have the best dressings for their salads"? I remember dining out as a child with my parents and grandparents and salad dressings seeming so exotic, although few for the offering: strong roqueforts, lovely thousand islands, marvelous russians, an egg-mayonnaise. Today, all I seem to find are watered-down ranches (in the Hidden Valley style) or the played-out rasberry vinaigrettes. Thanks. Sass

  1. Musso & Frank's has an eclectic selection of dressings, all ala carte. I don't eat salads there so I can't comment on quality but I'm sure others can.

    1. re: TomSwift

      Their roquefort in vinaigrette is excellent

    2. I still have a fondness for Lawry's Sherry dressing. They used to sell it in the supermarket, but now it's only available at the restaurant.

      1. For restaurants that have great dressing that you can buy in the store, I'm not able to give you any offereings but:

        For a restaurant that has a great dressing that you can buy at their restaurant only: Franks' Famous in Glendale/Montrose has a Maple Balsamic dressings that's great. Bahooka Restaurant has a great gingery dressing at their restaurant tha you can buy there too.

        Best store bought dressing....believe it or not there's a brand called Litehouse that you can get at HOWs and and some of the nicer Ralph's. They offer the Honey Mustard, Thousand Isle, and Roquefort that's very much like homestyle old school.
