I was so excited to have the opportunity to try Marzetti Simply Dressed Salad Dressing. I always have a hard time finding a salad dressing I actually like. I love Ranch, seriously I do, but it is such a fatty dressing that recently I have been trying out different flavors. I found this balsamic vinaigrette from Trader Joe’s which I love, but I knew I needed to find a variety of dressings I like, you know gotta keep it fresh. So when I saw the opportunity to try out a new salad dressing I jumped on it. I looked at their website and found that they have quite a variety of flavors, perfect for someone looking to change the taste of their salads.
I decided to try the Pomegranate flavor and boy oh boy was it amazing! My friend Lejia and I decided we wanted to use it for its intended purpose, salad dressing. At first we were bit skeptical as to whether or not the dressing would mix well with the shredded chicken and eggs, but we wanted to be adventurous so we gave it a go, and I am so glad we did. It was light and quite flavorful. It was particularly good because the flavor was not overwhelming at all, a bit tart but sweet at the same time. Just delightful. Seriously look at how amazing this salad looks….
I used some shredded chicken, corn, cucumbers, and soft boiled eggs, and plan on having this same salad all next week for lunch at work. Yummy, just looking at it again makes me hungry.
I wanted to try the Strawberry Poppy-seed flavor, because currently I am obsessed with poppy-seed dressing, but our Giant didn’t have it :(. sad. I wanted to put the strawberry poppy-seed one in a sandwich. A few months ago I tried this pita sandwich at Pica Deli, which had a poppy-seed dressing and I have been looking to replicate it ever since. Not this time. Our Giant only had 5 flavors, totally disappointing.
I actually think I want to use this dressing as a sort for glaze sometime next week to put on top of some grilled chicken, they also have a Champagne flavor that I think might be a good as a light sauce for pasta, who knows. I will need to thicken the dressing if I want to use it as a glaze, but I think it will turn out nicely.
I also really like this dressing because I could pronounce all the ingredients in it.. win
WATER, SUGAR, CANOLA OIL, DISTILLED VINEGAR, POMEGRANATE JUICE CONCENTRATE, ORANGE JUICE CONCENTRATE, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, SEA SALT, XANTHAN GUM, NATURAL FLAVOR, FRUIT AND VEGETABLE JUICE ADDED FOR COLOR, SPICE.
Try it out, they are in the refrigerated salad section of your local grocery store.
