VINO DE MILO POMEGRANATE PORT DRESSING & MARINADE
Jonathan Milo Leal, founder of Vino de Milo, takes an artful approach to creating wine-based specialty foods.
His newest venture is a line of wine-infused salad dressings. It was difficult to choose one to spotlight among the three in intriguing combinations: Mango Lemongrass Chardonnay,Gorgonzola Pear Riesling, and Pomegranate Port. I let my current passion for pomegranate guide me to the pomegranate port dressing. I wasn’t disappointed.
The creamy variety is a delectable blend that melds the tartness of pomegranate, orange and red wine vinegar with the sweetness of pear juice partnered with a fruity ruby port. The dressing definitely gave what would have been another boring salad a big boost.
The dressings are made from 100 percent fruit concentrate with no added sugars or preservatives. They are also gluten free.
The dressings can be found at Sam’s Wine and Spirits, Provenance Food & Wine, and Nuts About Nuts in suburban Geneva.
