Veggie Wednesday: Product Review and Giveaway!

Wish-Bone has a brand new set of salad dressing unlike any I've ever had. They're not your usual soupy dressing, they're full of chunks of vegetables and fruits and absolutely delicious.



The idea is, instead of adding dressing to your salad, these are full enough to build your salad around. The first thing I did with mine was to make black bean salsa. Usually that means several bottles and cans, but this time I added one full bottle of Wish-Bone® Bountifuls™ Simply Santa Fe Dressing to two cans of black beans and that was it. I served it up at lunch to my mother-in-law (isn't that the truest taste-test there is?) and she loved it so much that she asked specifically which dressing I used. When I gave her the recipe she was unconvinced that it was only two ingredients!


It does look good, doesn't it?


The rest went into plain ol' salads, except that they weren't plain ol' anymore! I can see the Berry Delight going very well with a salad of spring greens and flank steak (shhh - I know it's Veggie Wednesday) or the Tuscan Romano Basil shoring up a great Greek salad filled with feta cheese and kalamatas. Mmmm.

The website has flavor-specific recipes that you don't want to miss, so make sure to check them out.

All of these dressings are so delicious that I can't begin to tell you which to choose first, and FIVE of my lucky readers won't have to make that choice at all - I have 5 sets of all four flavors to give away, and all you need to do is to leave a comment before Tuesday, April 29 at 10 p.m. EST! I'll run the numbers through the ever nifty Random.org and post the winners on Wednesday, April 30th.

Now, GO and leave me a comment!

I just happened to come across your blog! I love it!!! I haven't seen these dressings yet in Central Illinois, I can't wait!

Annie Jones said...

i need these! LOL!

Jen said...

Oh these look fabulous! I would love to be able to make black bean salsa without all of that chopping!

KFarmer said...

As Rachel Ray says YUM-O! I'm headed to the grocery after I mow down by the lake and will look for them. Sounds like a perfect dish to serve folks this week-end while we are watching the race :)

Ranae said...

Looks yummy! And I'm all for quick and easy too ... what a good combo!

The Cookbook Junkie said...

Those look very interesting. I have to admit that I've been very into bottled salad dressing lately. Making my own is simple but opening a bottle is even simpler.

I'll be grocery shopping tomorrow and will get the ingredients - both of them for the black bean salsa.

Thanks

Those look really good. I haven't seen them in our local store yet. I am going to keep my eyes open when I go down that aisle now. :-) Thanks for the recommendation.

I haven't seen these in my grocery store yet. But, I will certainly watch for them. I'm always looking for new "salad" ideas, especially during the summer when I don't want to cook.

Your black bean creation looks great!
