Simply Dressed Lunch Salad

Most days, I make it home for lunch, and often my lunch of choice is a salad.

The other day, I received a coupon for Marzetti Simply Dressed salad dressing through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program. The dressing is refrigerated, and there are ten flavors to choose from.

I chose Blue Cheese as the toddler really enjoyed the blue cheese dressing hubby ordered in a restaurant a few weeks ago, and we never have it at home.

I first tried it on my lunch salad which consisted of leftover leaf lettuce, tomatoes, and halibut.

I was afraid the blue cheese dressing would not go with the fish, but it actually went very well. The dressing is creamy and has a slight, very pleasant blue cheese taste. The blue cheese is not at all overpowering, and I enjoyed it a lot. 

Questions: What’s your favorite salad dressing? I usually dress my salad very simply with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. If I feel “fancy,” I’ll add some cheese. It’s fun to experiment with a good bottled dressing once in a while though. Any exciting weekend plans? Our last couple weekends have been really busy, and we have to catch up a lot around the house. I hope to get lots of things crossed off my do-to list so that I don’t feel too frazzled come Monday (I have been feeling that way too often lately…).

Be well,
