It’s a new month (seriously, can anyone believe its December already?!) and I have a few new and exciting projects up my sleeve. The first is that I’ve been asked to be a “spokesblogger” for Marzetti Simply Dressed salad dressings!
Throughout the month of December, in addition to my regular posts, I’ll be featuring a few quick and easy recipes that I created featuring these dressings. At the end of the month, there will be a fabulous giveaway that will allow two of you to try the dressing out for yourself.
I’m really excited about this opportunity! First off, I think that I develop some of my most creative and delicious recipes when I’m given a product to work with since it keeps me focused. Secondly, although I haven’t had the opportunity to try the whole line yet, I genuinely love these dressings – especially the ginger sesame. They are full of really intense flavor and have a simple list of identifiable ingredients that looks very similar to what I would use if I was making my own dressing from scratch. They also have a great texture – they’re thick and creamy but not as “gloopy” as some other prepared dressings can be (I think the gloopiness in other dressing might be from corn syrup – these don’t have any of that.). So far, I’ve tried the Ranch, Pomegranate, Ginger Sesame, and Champagne varieties, and I can’t wait to try the Greek Feta and Strawberry Poppyseed varieties.
Here are a few of my favorite recipes that use Simply Dressed dressings:
- Chicken and Pepper Pasta (using champagne vinaigrette)
- Balsamic Chicken and Mushrooms (using balsamic dressing)
- Oven-Fried Pickles with Southwest Ranch (made with ranch dressing)
- Summer Salad with Grilled Shrimp (made with lemon vinaigrette)
- Mini Buffalo-Blue Potato Skins (with blue cheese dressing)
- Ginger Sesame Chicken Wraps (with ginger sesame dressing)
Have you ever tried Simply Dressed? Which is your favorite?
I was one of the bloggers selected by T. Marzetti Company to review Simply Dressed Refrigerated Salad Dressings. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program as well as my writing about my experience. I have also been provided products for review. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
