In 2000, Peter and his wife, Valencia, launched Okanagan Wineland Dressings, and it is now their full-time gig. They added Raspberry & Black Pepper and Cilantro & Lime vinaigrettes tot he line-up early on, and Fresh Herb & Garlic, Blackberry Basil, and Blueberry vinaigrettes more recently. All are made by hand in small batches with no added sugar. Now, the bottles are sold all over the Okanagan in specialty food shops and at fruit stands and wineries, as well as throughout the BC Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island.
The Cilantro and Lime Vinaigrette is great on salads bringing the zing of fresh cilantro with the zest of limes. It is also a fabulous marinade for chicken, seafood or pork and is terrific drizzled on vegetables like asparagus, green beans or carrots. Try it in a quinoa salad or use it to make ceviche.
