Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program with Marzetti Simply Dressed Salad Dressing


As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a coupon to choose ANY Marzetti Simply Dressed Salad Dressings. I was intrigued to try a salad dressing because I usually make my own dressings at home but when I read the following description I decided to give one of the dressings a try. Here is a snippet about the dressings:

Marzetti Simply Dressed is made with a minimal number of all-natural ingredients, such as extra virgin olive oil, canola oil (source of Omega-3 ALA) and sea salt, and does not contain any preservatives, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, MSG or artificial flavors or colors. Finding a refrigerated Simply Dressed variety that pleases your palate is easy with 10 varieties to use on your favorite salads, grilled vegetables, and in wraps. 



When I went to the store I looked for the dressings in the refrigerated section of the produce area. There were 10 different kinds of dressings but most of them were creamy and mostly with dairy. Here are the options are really had:

I decided to try the Champagne Salad Dressing which had the following ingredients: WATER, CANOLA OIL, CHAMPAGNE AND WHITE WINE VINEGARS, SUGAR, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, SEA SALT, NATURAL FLAVOR, GARLIC*, XANTHAN GUM, BELL PEPPER*, SPICES.

I used the dressing in our everyday salads for a week and after a week I realized I felt like I was eating regular Italian dressing. There was really nothing special about this dressing except the fact that it uses natural ingredients. I am not much one for fruity dressings but I now regret not going for one of those. Maybe in the future I will try one of those.

Check out Marzetti’s website to see the rest of their dressings and try one this week.
