Marzetti Simply Dressed to Dress Up Your Salad! #Review



Does the word "boring" come to mind when you think of a dinner salad? A side salad? ...or having salad for dinner?

This past year we have changed our eating habits. The composition of our plate transformed from mainly protein and starch to mainly plant based. One of the best ways to keep this new balance at dinner is to include a large salad on our plate.

Unfortunately the same salad can get a little monotonous. Sure, I can change the chopped veggies but the overall flavor sometimes needs a bit help.

I went all over town looking for Marzetti Simply Dressed Dressings to no avail. Found near the vegetable section in the grocery store, Marzetti has a wide selection of premium salad dressings. Luckily I was able to have some help tracking down a bottle of Simply Dressed Pomegranate Salad Dressing.

A wake up for my taste buds and only 60 calories per serving!

It was a little sweeter than the other salad dressings I use, but it was a great change from my usual vinaigrette or sesame ginger options.

A nice flavor complemented the spinach in my salad. I also tossed in a few dried cranberries for added sweet and some grape tomatoes. The aroma of the pomegranate was wonderful. It really grabbed my attention and wouldn't let me overlook the salad.

If pomegranate isn't your thing, the dressing line includes:

  • Strawberry Poppyseed
  • Ginger Sesame
  • Champagne
  • Greek Feta
  • Ranch 
  • and more... (10 dressings in all)

Marzetti Simply Dressed is a new line of salad dressings with a short ingredient list using all-natural, simple ingredients. They include oils like extra virgin olive oil, canola oil and sea salt. That is what I like to see on the back of my dressing bottles! 

So if salad has you singing the dinner blues tonight, why not check to see if your local grocer carries Marzetti? Check on their site for where you can find Marzetti products. Veggies are good for you, but they don't have to be boring. I will be filling out a request form at our local store because they need to start carrying Marzetti Simply Dressed dressings.

...I am hooked!
