Evri Dressing-2-Go

I found this little Evri Dressing-2-Go device while at Stop & Shop. I’m “guilty” of bringing sides of salad dressing with me when going out to eat, but my technique can get messy or it could potentially make my purse a smelly mess.  So when I saw this little portable dressing container I knew I had to buy it.
The container is a softer silicone which makes squeezing the container easy.  The top screws on and off and it has a flip-top for easy pouring.  It holds almost ¼ cup of salad dressing in it – but I would only a serving size of salad dressing to it.
One fun fact I learned from a fellow Instagramer (which reminds me I need to pick another one of these up):  she uses these to bring coffee creamer with her on the road so she can control her milk/creamer portion!

Olive Garden Light Italian Dressing

This was a fun food find at Walmart – Olive Garden Light Italian Dressing.  I love having salad, but I admit sometimes my salad dressing choices can get old. I believe I have the largest array of salad dressings in the refrigerator, but my Italian dressing choice is boring to me as of late that I don’t even use it – so this was a perfect find.
I haven’t been to the Olive Garden in ages, but I recall when I last went the best thing about my meal was the salad and breadsticks. The dressing is sold in both the full-fat and light variety.  Since I do not use full-fat dressings (because frankly they are not worth the calories/fat/points) I opted to go with the Light.  I will admit, it was a little pricey as far as dressings are concerned – $3.28.
The dressing is liquidy as most Italian dressings are but is packed with flavor.  There’s a zippiness to it, that’s pleasing on the taste. There’s also a nice helping of romano cheese throughout the dressing which give it a salty quality. It’s definitely a homerun and a far different flavor when compared to regular Italian (as in Robusto Italian dressing).
There’s 30 calories in a 2 tablespoon serving – which is 1 points plus value.  Although for 1 tablespoon serving, 15 calories and 0 points plus values.

Bolthouse Farms Honey Mustard Yogurt Dressing

I love salad, but I admit my choice of dressing can get boring.  Unfortunately, when my dressing is boring, my salads feel boring and I start to lose interest.  To spice it up, I’m always on the hunt for a new dressing to add into the mix to keep things interesting and flavorful.
When I spotted the Bolthouse Farms Honey Mustard Yogurt Dressing I was immediately intrigued. I calculated the points plus values, added the bottle to my shopping cart and off I went.  I frequent Chick-Fil-A and they have THE best fat free honey mustard dressing on the planet, so I hoped this would give my palette that same flavor category. It’s not a duplicate, but it’s more than likely the closest I am going to get. It’s just plain delicious – creamy, packed with flavor, and unique enough to even be a replacement for mayonnaise in some recipes (broccoli slaw, maybe even a little in potato salad).
I absolutely love this dressing and I’m looking forward to trying more from this line.  There’s a whole line of dressings by Bolthouse Farms. The line can be found in your grocery stores refrigerator section near the produce.
The greatest part is a 2 tablespoon serving is only 1 points plus values. Definitely worth it in my opinion!

Food Find: Walden Farms Sesame Ginger Calorie Free Dressing

While grocery shopping I somehow stumbled upon the dressings in the pre-bagged salad section.  I can’t say I was even in the section to pick anything up, I stopped in front of the section, noticed the salad dressings and picked up the bottle.  I’m a big ginger lover and the sesame ginger flavor seemed intriguing.  I don’t particularly like sweeter dressings with my salads since I typically mix meats and random condiments into my salads that a sweeter dressing can be a bit overpowering.
I looked over the ingredients and it had soy sauce, ginger, etc., in it.  The dressing itself looked like it wasn’t totally runny so I figured I’d give it a shot … and I have to say I am REALLY glad I did!  It’s perfect on a tossed salad and it’s even good on a grilled chicken salad.  I’ve enjoyed this flavor so much that I’ve put some salad into pita bread, added some of this dressing and enjoyed.  It’s quite delicious and for 0 calories?  It makes it even better!
