Growing up in the restaurant business and later in life trying to keep up with feeding a family of 7, Surria Fadel knew everything there was to know about cooking. While also being largely involved in the community, Surria was always sharing her outstanding recipes for everyone to enjoy and she was most famous for her Fattoush Salad Dressing. One day after a family friend jokingly told the Fadel's to start bottling her recipe and sell it, Surria's son, Ameen, decided it was the perfect idea.
Founded by Ameen Fadel, at the age of 16 in Lakeshore, Ontario, Cedar Valley Selections began with the creation of Canada’s FIRST bottled Fattoush Salad Dressing. With a small grant from Ameen’s school board and his mom’s signature recipe, he had all he needed to begin his venture.
Following over a year of product development, testing, and sampling with the school teachers, Cedar Valley Selections’ Signature Fattoush Dressing was ready. After just selling to family and friends, Ameen approached his first local deli in Belle River, ON and had finally brought Canada its first retail Fattoush Dressing.
