I’ve mentioned before that I don’t make many main course salads because it’s a pain to chop up all the necessary veggies to make a restaurant quality plate of greens at home. But, I also tend to get lazy about making anything other than a boring balsamic vinaigrette, which is a shame since the dressing usually makes the salad in my opinion! So when the creative team behind Girard’s salad dressings contacted me about trying several of their new flavors, I was really excited, especially since I’ve actually been a fan of their products for several years now (it all started when I randomly picked up a bottle of their yummy spinach salad dressing for a baby shower I co-hosted back in Chicago). They have 14 regular and 4 light varieties so there really is something for everyone.
So Girard’s sent me three of their new flavors to try – apple poppyseed, creamy balsamic, and peach mimosa, and also their signature champagne dressing. They were all very tasty, but my favorite was the peach mimosa because it was so creative – I actually wished I had come up with the idea for this flavor combo! Since I enjoyed the dressings so much, Girard’s offered to also send a package of the four dressings I tried to five of my readers!

p.s. The fine print: Girard’s sent me the salad dressings to try for free and is sponsoring this giveaway, but I received no compensation for this post and all opinions are mine. The winners will be picked with random.org on Monday, August 16 and announced shortly thereafter.
