Boise caterer April Hale always gives her food a personal touch at her Open Table Catering company. Now she’s doing the same with a new venture April’s Green House, a line of locally made dressings.

April’s Green House 16-ounce dressings sell for $7.99 at the Boise Co-op’s two locations: 888 W. Fort St., Boise and 2350 N. Eagle Road, Meridian.

Over the years, Hale developed her basil-balsamic and cilantro-lime salad dressings into marinades for meat and tofu, and ingredients for dips.

“I’ve had countless clients ask where they can buy my dressings, and until now, they’ve had to come to our kitchen to pick up a bottle,” Hale says.

Hale makes April’s Green House in her commercial kitchen in small batches with fresh herbs. They are gluten- and dairy-free, and vegetarian.

She began catering as a co-owner of Metro Gourmet Catering in 2007, then opened her own company in 2009.
