WHAT IS A COBB SALAD?
Cobb salad is a classic American chopped salad dish which takes its name from the owner of the restaurant it became a signature dish at - Robert Cobb!
There are many variations but traditional Cobb salads are made with lettuce, tomatoes, crispy bacon, hard-boiled eggs, avocado and cheese, all well-dressed in a salad dressing or vinaigrette.
WHAT IS RANCH DRESSING?
Ranch dressing is also American in origin and is a creamy salad dressing usually made with buttermilk, oil, herbs and seasonings.
Like mayonnaise, the main ingredient in ranch dressing is oil - so which oil is used has a big impact on the overall nutritional profile and healthiness of the ranch dressing!
HUNTER & GATHER 100% OLIVE OIL RANCH DRESSING
We love coming up with new salad recipes and over the years have experimented with heaps of different homemade dressings, after all nobody likes a dry salad!
You can buy ranch dressing in the supermarket but they are made using veg or seed oils - making them a no-go for Keto & Paleo lifestyles, or anyone in the pursuit of optimal health!
So, we decided we would create our own salad dressing made using 100% olive oil, to share with our fellow real food enthusiasts who never put convenience over health!
And so Hunter & Gather 100% Olive Oil Dressing was born...
