I was recently doing a blogging day cooking with my adorable assistant Kara, and we realized that three out of the four recipes we were making used Newman’s Classic Oil and Vinegar in some way.

Who Makes Newman’s Classic Vinegar and Oil Dressing?

I like Newman’s Special Classic Oil Vinaigrette (affiliate link) Mostly about flavor and low-carb ingredients, but there’s a great story behind the company as well. Newman’s Own is a food company founded in 1982 by actor Paul Newman and author A.E. Hotchner. The company donates 100% of its after-tax profits to the Newman’s Own Foundation, a private nonprofit that in turn supports many educational and charitable organizations. Despite Paul Newman’s death in 2008, his daughter continued to run the company, and they have donated more than $550 million to charity.

What makes this sauce so good?

Truthfully, I don’t eat this sauce as much as I just have salad dressing poured out of the bottle. But I think this classic oil and vinegar has the perfect flavor to use as a starting point in a recipe. For me, it has the perfect balance of oil and vinegar, so one doesn’t overpower the other. And with one carb in two tablespoons, it’s a great choice for a carb-conscious ingredient.
