When I picture cowboy cuisine, I usually don’t picture fancy salad dressings. Heck, I usually don’t picture salads. But Roy Rogers and Dale Evans show a different side to ranch style cooking, one that includes a generous portions of green leafy vegetables and of course, Seven Seas Salad Dressing.
Now I would have though that Roy’s favorite dressing would be Ranch. It seems so obvious, but Roy does not do the obvious, instead his favorite is “Viva Italian.” I am sure he kept a bottle of it in a saddle bag at all times, so after a hard day of riding and singing he could sit next to the campfire, look up at the stars and enjoy a nicoise salad, just like they did back in the Ol’ West.
