There is a good reason that oil and vinegar have long been the go-to additions to salad: olive oil helps the body absorb nutrients in food and vinegar helps to digest them. At Dress It Up Dressing, founder Sophia Maroon has perfected this classic pairing, drawing from a recipe her mother made daily when Sophia was growing up. Using only extra virgin olive oil emulsified with vinegar, garlic, mustard, and sea salt, Sophia makes silky, creamy dressings that coat but don’t overpower.

Although they have now branched out to make other dressings, Dress It Up Dressing began with Red Wine Vinaigrette, using the recipe that Sophia’s mother originated in the 1970s. In Sophia’s hands, it went from feeding the family to being shared with friends and eventually to market shelves across the country, maintaining the same high quality and exceptional flavor throughout. A versatile dressing, it is perfect spooned (not poured) out of the jar and onto any salad where the nutty olive oil, sweet balsamic, and powerful red wine vinegar combine to enhance the taste and texture of fresh greens and vegetables.
