• Rio Grande Dressing Mix


    Our Rio Grande Dip Mix makes a delightfully different seasoning for vinaigrettes.  In a vinaigrette, the chipotle and maple flavor fusion compliments green, vegetable, pasta and fruit salads, and is delightful as a marinade, or simply as a dipping sauce. 

    Rio Grande Shrimp & Melon Canapé is pictured.  The sweet, savory, spicy flavor combination of shrimp, melon and the vinaigrette pictured is just delicious!  This appetizer is sophisticated enough to be served in any 5 star restaurant, yet it's simple and quick to make.  That makes it just about perfect for a party appetizer.

    This New England/Southwestern flavor fusion is complimented by wine, beer and cocktails. 


    Pasta Salad Dressing:  Rio Grande Vinaigrette is a great way to take pasta salad from ordinary to extraordinary.  For a really quick version, add one thawed and drained package of mixed frozen vegetables (black beans, corn, red & green peppers, white onions), or one can of a similar mix, to half a package of cooked pasta; then dress with this zingy southwestern vinaigrette (pictured).  Add diced avocado if desired.  It gives this salad a smooth, creamy finish.  Perfect whether it's for a snack, appetizer salad or salad meal.  Beer & wine complement this salad nicely. It’s quick, easy and a delicious addition to any party buffet.

    Side Dishes:  For Rio Grande Mixed Southwestern Veggies or Rio Grande Salsa, follow the directions for pasta salad above, just leave out the pasta (pictured as mixed veggies).

    Marinade & Dipping Sauce:  This vinaigrette can also be used as a marinade for chicken or pork, and then used as a dipping sauce for the grilled or roasted meat.  Chopped grilled marinated Rio Grande Chicken with Rio Grande Dipping Sauce is pictured.  It’s just delicious.   See RECIPES for vinaigrette directions.
