Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Le Parisien Vinaigrette Dressing
Le Parisien Vinaigrette Dressing has been my favorite for many years, and this is the dressing I love to use to make Basil Vinaigrette! And on Saturdays I’m going to try to get more consistent about spotlighting products like this that I love and buy over and over!
In college I worked at a now-closed Utah restaurant named Le Parisien. It was a fun place, and the tips were so good that I kept waiting on tables there long after I graduated and became a teacher. At Le Parisien I made memories of serving people like Robert Redford, Vincent Price, and Billy Joel, and “the restaurant” as we called it, was where I learned to eat things like Escargot, Bernaise Sauce, and Hearts of Palm. And their famous Strawberries Romanoff got featured on the blog with a lower-carb option!
One thing that made this place a favorite with locals was this wonderful Le Parisien Vinaigrette Dressing. I ate a salad with that dressing nearly every shift I worked there, so you can imagine how excited I was when stores in Utah started carrying it. And for more years than I can remember this has been my favorite dressing for making Basil Vinaigrette!
Where can you get Le Parisien Dressing?
I don’t know how widely available this dressing is outside of Utah, but I still find it at Costco in Salt Lake and it’s listed at Costco.com. But whether or not it’s hard to find and despite skeptics who would never buy pre-made dressing, I’ve loved this dressing so much for so long it will permanently be one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, where I talk about products I love.
It’s time to make Basil Vinaigrette!
Whether or not you live somewhere that you can find this favorite dressing of mine, I’m reminding you that it’s time to trim your basil and make Basil Vinaigrette! You can use any type of low-sugar vinaigrette for the base of the Basil Vinaigrette if you don’t find this one; Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing (affiliate link) is one that I’ve used many times. And at my house it wouldn’t be summer without some Basil Vinaigrette in the fridge!
