Galeos Salad Dressing

I first learned about Galeos Dressings from social media and was intrigued by their slogan “one taste and you’re hooked for life”. Upon further investigation, I discovered a line of miso based salad dressings available in a variety of flavors. The company currently offers 6 flavor variations: Miso & Chia Seed Sesame Seed , Miso Caesar , Miso Dijonnaise, Miso Ginger & Wasabi , Miso & Chia Seed Creamy Ranch, and Miso Spicy Southwest. All of the products are both MSG and Gluten-Free. Additionally, all products are advertised as being multi-use serving as dressings, marinades, and dips.

Unfortunately, Galeos is not available in any of my local grocery stores, but they do offer online ordering through both their website and Amazon. Upon reviewing the product’s website, and communicating my order directly with the company, I was surprised with how quickly my dressings arrived. To start, I tried three varieties, the Miso & Chia Sesame Seed, Miso Ginger & Wasabi, and Miso Spicy Southwest. I was excited to try my new dressings, but was not immediately ready to cook with them, or eat enough salad to give each of them a fair taste. I decided to cut up some vegetables, and used Galeos as a dip, giving each of the three varieties I received a try. I was really impressed with the flavors of each dressing. The Sesame & Chia Seed is sweet, while the Ginger & Wasabi has a strong wasabi flavor that is just right without being overpowering. The Miso Spicy Southwest was exactly as advertised, spicy. I definitely felt the heat in this dressing, but the flavor was good. I typically don’t love spicy things, so while I likely won’t continue to use this flavor as a dip or on salads, I will definitely be incorporating it into future recipes that will balance some of the heat.

After sampling the dressings, I started brainstorming uses, and developed three recipes (found below) which really highlight the versatility of the products.
