Vinaigrette

Clear or non-emulsified dressings are made from a vinegar and oil base. Kühne only uses premium rapeseed oil in its vinaigrettes, as it is considered one of the healthiest oils around.

Creamy dressings

Creamy or emulsified dressings are prepared with dairy products such as yoghurt or crème fraîche, among other things. They are thicker and cling better to the salad, giving it an especially creamy note.

Fresh facts

How it all began...

In 1973, we began making dressings with "Salatfix spicy herb" and were the first German producer. In those days, dressings were only imported from America and England which is why we can call ourselves the German inventor of salad dressings. We have been the no. 1 in non-cooled ready. made dressings for over 40 years.

Germany’s eating habits

All dressings are all alike no matter where you are, right? Not even close! Did you know that in Northern Germany, creamy dressings with yoghurt or crème fraîche are the preferred choice? Especially popular: Yoghurt dressing and Creamy Onion Dressing. In Southern Germany, however, salad dressings made from an oil and vinegar base tend to be preferred such as Fine Herbs Vinaigrette Dressing.

Consumption in Germany

Approximately 8.7% of the German population consumes salad dressing more than once a week. This corresponds to just under 7 million people. Incidentally, the Yoghurt Dressing is by far the most popular variety

Caesar salad – invented by the Roman emperor?

Many people believe that Caesar salad and Caesar dressing date back to ancient Rome and was named after the powerful dictator Gaius Julius Caesar who is said to have had a favourite salad. Yet, the truth is far less dramatic. The Italian-American Caesar Cardini ran a restaurant in Tijuana and invented the salad on 4 July 1924 because he ran out of raw materials and only salad was available.
