More and more I have been loving salads for dinner, for a quick, easy, tasty and healthy family meal. Sometimes I make my own dressing, but honestly, I find it easier to satisfy everyone’s different tastes by just providing a variety of store-bought dressings and letting everyone pick their favourite.
I guess that’s why I was excited to hear about Kraft’s new salad dressings – Pourables. They are made with real fruits and vegetables and have no artificial flavours or colours, so I don’t have to compromise when choosing a ready-made salad dressing. They are also low in fat and salt. I like that, too.
As for the new flavour options, they are all bold, with a fresh taste. The varieties include Berry Balsamic, Roasted Yellow Pepper, Garlic and Lime, Fire Roasted Tomato with Basil and Garlic Parmesan with Roasted Cauliflower. I enjoyed them all.
We tried them with a Turkey and Ham Cobb Salad. It’s one of my favourite dinner salads, since it has enough meat to satisfy my husband’s appetite, while offering a variety of taste and textures. It’s a bit of chopping, but honestly, after a busy day, I kind of find that therapeutic.
I tried the Yellow Pepper, Garlic and Lime and loved it’s fresh vegetable flavour. My husband enjoyed the Fire Roasted Tomato and thought it went especially nice with this salad. Our daughter picked the Garlic Parmesan, made with roasted cauliflower. She’s a garlic girl and really liked this dressing, as well. I did a separate taste test of the Berry Balsamic and can say that it has a wonderful fresh fruit taste. It would be especially nice on salads that have fruit (oranges, cranberries, apples or pears).
