(March 9, 5:20 p.m.) For a company that doesn’t even specialize in it, Aunt Mid’s seems to know what it’s doing when it comes to making salad dressing.

Aunt Mid’s, a Detroit-based processor of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, won a 2009 Scovie Award for its Tropical Poppy flavor dressing, part of the company’s line of all-natural gluten-free salad dressing and vinaigrettes.

The Scovie Awards recognize products from around the world in gourmet food competitions. Products go through blind taste-testing by a panel of culinary experts. This year, more than 800 products representing 32 states and four countries competed.

Aunt Mid’s Tropical Poppy salad dressing can be used on salads and sandwiches and in basting or grilling chicken, vegetables, fish, beef and pork.

Aunt Mid’s dressings can be found in the produce department at supermarket chains, independent grocers, and fruit and vegetable markets throughout Michigan and in nine other states. For more information, visit www.AuntMids.com.
