Dress To Impress: What The Best Salads Are Wearing For Summer 2024 (Win!)

June 23, 2024

Ready to dress up … your salad? This summer, the best-dressed salads will be “wearing” Maison Orphée. The 40-year-old, Québec City-based leader in oils and condiments has revamped—and added to—its popular line of dressings, which also do double-duty as excellent marinades for proteins and veggies.

With six delectable flavours, Maison Orphée’s dressings use the brand’s own oleic sunflower oil as its first ingredient (where as most other dressings begin with water). The result? A creamy, satisfying, 100 per cent plant-based emulsion—a real rarity for ready-made, store-bought offerings. Plus, a short ingredient list, often enhanced by other Maison Orphée products (organic apple cider vinegar as a preservative, Dijon mustard) help to meet sodium and sugar reduction targets.

“In looking to improve our dressings lineup to truly impress consumers, we wanted to ensure we had a collection that stood above other options,” says Élisabeth Bélanger, president of Maison Orphée. “Utilizing oleic sunflower oil as the first ingredient was the impetus around the entire lineup.” The key, she adds, was the ideal blend of ingredients to create the perfect emulsion, better than what one could create themselves at home.

Walking the runway this season: fan-favourites Caesar, Greek and Olive & Balsamic, which have been updated to reduce acidity and to amplify aromatic notes, while Sesame & Tamari and Maple & Dijon keep their original, mouth-watering recipes. New to the collection is Garden Passion, a perfect collab of green goddess and ranch flavourings. All are vegan, and, besides being delicious salad dressings, all are superstar marinades as well, adding depth of flavour to beef, chicken, pork and plant-based proteins. Use one, or mix-and-match for a flavourful dinner. Find them in store and online here.

Thanks to Maison Orphée, summer salads have never been more in style! —Vita Daily

    I am loving fresh radishes in my salad these early summer days. I think they’d be even better with the sesame dressing.
