Bolthouse Farms Salad Dressings

Do you eat a lot of salads?  I do.  Usually I am eating at least 1, if not 2, salads a day.  I normally use Kraft’s Light Balsamic Vinaigrette, but since I like to switch things up every once in a while, I branched out.  A couple of weeks back, Bolthouse Farms salad dressings were on sale, so I picked up the Raspberry Merlot Olive Oil Vinaigrette. 

The first thing that caught my eye about Bolthouse Farms was the clear labeling.  Each bottle of dressing says “gluten-free” right on it.  In addition to being gluten-free, these dressings have:

  • No Trans Fat.
  • No Preservatives, Artificial Colors, Flavors.
  • No High Fructose Corn Syrup, MSG or Added Sugar

There is so much unnecessary added sugar in products these days, it is like a breath of fresh air to see that these dressings are free from that.  There are 12 different varieties of dressings: 7 yogurt dressings and 5 olive oil dressings.  If you are not big on salads, many of these dressings can be used as a go-to marinade for meat or dips for veggies, hot chicken wings or gluten-free chicken fingers. 

Yogurt Dressings

  • Chunky Blue Cheese
  • Caesar Parmigiano
  • Classic Ranch
  • Thousand Island
  • Honey Mustard
  • Original Coleslaw
  • Creamy Italian

Olive Oil Vinaigrettes

  • Asian Ginger
  • Chunky Blue Cheese
  • Classic Balsamic
  • Raspberry Merlot
  • Tropical Mango

When I find a company that I like, I am extremely loyal.  Clear labeling, good business practices and values, good food and reasonable pricing make it easy to be loyal to a company.  I have fallen in love with Bolthouse and their dressings.  The Raspberry Merlot is wonderful on a spinach salad with goat cheese, walnuts & blackberries or raspberries.  Some more about Bolthouse Farms:
