Stengls is one of the new vendors at the Sugarcreek Township farm market this year, bringing with them their handcrafted salad dressings/marinades.Each Friday, Stengls offers samples for their Famous Garlic and Tarragon Dressing and Marinade and their Mediterranean Dressing and Marinade. Delicious pieces of crusty, wood-fired bread (they sell that too) are handed out with small cups of the dressing. The line then forms at their booth and remains until the salad dressing is all sold out!
Don’t believe me? Go sample for yourself every Friday between 3 pm and 7 pm at the Sugarcreek Township farm market at 6134 Wilmington Pike, in the parking lot of the old Cub’s grocery store. The Mediterranean dressing is low in sugar and calories and is sodium-free, and has a fresh lemony-garlic flavor.
This author is betting that the Garlic and Tarragon dressing is NOT low in sugar, but it is so tasty you want to drink it straight from the bottle. No, really. You can put it in pasta salad, vegetable dip, cole slaw, vegetable salad or just dip bread into it. If you need more ideas on ways to use this dressing (as if), you can go to their website for recipe ideas.
Stengl’s also brings along their wood-fired bread, which they bake in a portable clay brick oven. The crust is perfect, the bread inside is soft and delicious, and the loaves look just as beautiful as they taste!
