For years I have en­joyed the delicious deli at Petak’s in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. I was re­cently shopping at Ju­lio’s Fruit Market in Te­aneck when I came across a bottled, re­frigerated, parve salad dressing with the Pe­tak name on it. I imme­diately called the Petak’s store in Fair Lawn and was happily surprised to hear that this dressing was a fresh product pro­duced by them. Since I had been searching for a parve, fresh, refriger­ated salad dressing, I decided to buy both of their flavors, Sweet Soy and Caesar Salad Dress­ing. The dressings are creamy and delicious. They did not have a chemical taste or sour after-taste which many of the preservative-filled dressings in stores have.

I spoke with Gary Rubin, the owner of Pe­tak’s, who said the product “flies off the shelf.” Although he only has two flavors now, he will be increasing to 12 flavors in the future. He also said he is looking for a distributor, but for now, the dressings are available at several of local stores and supermarkets, and can be ordered at Petak’s in Fair Lawn, NJ, 201-797- 5010
