Vinaigrette a la CLE

Vinaigrette a la CLE

Brian Leigh

Alan from Sunny Point Gardens approached me and wondered if we'd have interest in creating a vinaigrette and providing samples for market day. Of course we were interested! So we created a vinaigrette with our mustard, maple and rosemary barbecue sauce, The Clevelander.

If you haven't checked out Sunny Point Gardens hydroponic mixed greens, you are missing out! Best greens in Bowling Green. Come check out Sunny Point Gardens and our vinaigrette at the SoKY Marketplace on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm.

Anyway, here is the recipe:




  1. Get your hardware! a fairly deep bowl and a whisk.
  2. Add The Clevelander Sauce to the bowl and whisk in olive oil to emulsify the mustard. The mustard should thicken and become glossier in appearance.
  3. Continue whisking, adding the apple cider vinegar to thin the dressing. If you like it tangier, add more; if you want it thinner, add more. Remember, there is vinegar in the bbq sauce, so you should continually taste your mixture to see if its how you like it. It's your world.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. If you really want to amp it up and give it that spicy punch, add a pinch of Somethin' To Cry About.
  6. Dress your greens and enjoy! Maybe add some bleu cheese or goat cheese. Go wild.
