A bit about us:

In the late 1940s, a woman and her husband ran a restaurant at the local Legion Club in St. Paul, Nebraska. This is where she first served up the original recipe for her Home Style Dressing. As more Legion Club members tasted the sweet and spicy flavor, the legend of her recipes began to grow, and the dressing became a statewide favorite. Locals even brought in their own bottles to fill up with "that delicious salad dressing." Today, we are a Midwestern favorite for Home Style Dressing & Condiments. We have the essential ingredient in every Midwestern family’s favorite recipes—not just salad.
**Now, we are in multiple states throughout the Midwest, including Grocery Stores and Big Box Stores and continuing to grow!
