Flavorful Sauces, Widespread Appeal

Menu innovation can come about through many forms of inspiration: fusion flavors, street food and new spins on traditional cooking techniques, just to name a few. Bay Valley Foods makes it easy and cost-effective for your operators to get creative with big flavors this holiday season, with ready-to-use dressings and sauces that work in multiple menu applications.

When it comes to back-of-house versatility, our dressings and sauces truly shine. They can be used as salad dressings, dips, marinades and more. With a full line of classic and on-trend flavors, our products lend themselves well to customization and ingredient add-ins. Operators can even combine multiple varieties (such as Pineapple Curry and Sweet Chili) to create signature “house” finishing sauces. Ready-to-use sauces from Bay Valley Foods showcase globally inspired flavors, which can spark creative menu ideas and help your customers differentiate their concepts from the competition.

Show your customers how products from the Bay Valley Foods family of brands can serve “double duty” on the menu. Here are some concepts that showcase a single product in multiple applications, for holiday LTOs as well as year-round menu offerings:

  • Cocktail Sauce: Shrimp Cocktail is a classic component of holiday meals, including buffet stations and multi-course fixed price meals. Our Rod’s® Cocktail Sauce can also spice up a Grilled Shrimp Flatbread, perfect as an on-trend sharable dish.
  • Dijon Horseradish Dressing: patrons will love a “Holiday Leftovers” Sandwich made with roast turkey or ham, cranberry chutney and Naturally Fresh® Dijon Horseradish. This dressing also complements Prime Rib and serves as a tasty dipping sauce for an appetizer platter of Panko-Crusted Vegetables.
  • Alfredo Sauce: Fettuccini Alfredo is a patron favorite, especially during the cold-weather months. But Saucemaker® Classic Alfredo Sauce can also be used as the base for Spinach Artichoke Dip. Served with grilled pita wedges, it’s sure to be a top-seller all year round.
  • Orange Ginger Sauce: center-of-the-plate star Crispy Roast Duck is the perfect match for a glaze made from Saucemaker® Zesty Orange Ginger Sauce. This sauce also serves as a delicious marinade for basting the perfect Holiday Ham and can be used year-round to enhance the flavor of other proteins, too.
