Tempt My Tummy Tuesday… Girard’s Dressings and a Giveaway

by Lisa on July 26, 2010

I am glad you are joining us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday, this week. Please be polite and follow the rules of a blog carnival, mentioning TMTT and linking back to this post from your blog post. Thanks.

Disclaimer: I received the Girard’s Premium Dressings in return for a review and giveaway on my blog.  Although given the dressings, the opinions regarding these dressings are mine.

I recently received a case of four very special dressings and vinaigrettes.  Girard’s Premium Dressings sent their newest flavors : Apple Poppyseed, Creamy Balsamic and Peach Mimosa along with a bottle of their signature Champagne dressing.  I am very excited about my salads, these days!  No bland and boring salad with the usual dressing.  No ma’am.  Each salad becomes a special event when I put Creamy Balsamic or Apply Poppyseed.  I am loving my knew found dressing choices.  I was at my local Shop ‘n Save, this morning, and priced the Girard’s Premium Dressings.  They were marked at $3.93/bottle.  Yes, I agree this is more than I would usually spend on a bottle of dressing.  However, I could consider making this purchase when having a special dinner which would include an  out of the ordinary salad.

Currently, my favorites are the Apple Poppyseed dressing and Peach Mimosa Vinaigrette.   You would think they are very sweet – BUT- they are not.   There is slight sweetness to them, but not overpowering. They are light and perfect for a summer salad.

These dressing could be used for more than just salads, as well.  I will be trying the Creamy Balasmic as a chicken marinade.  I also think the Peach Mimosa would make a great glaze for fish.  What do you think?

Below is a recipe for Peach Jicama Salad, using the Peach Mimosa Vinaigrette.   This recipe was included in my package from Girard’s.  I think this salad is PERFECT for summer.  Enjoy.

Peach Jicama Salad
1 medium jicama, peeled and julienned ( about 3 cups)
2 cups match stick or shredded carrots
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
2 peaches, peeled and cut into thin strips
1/4 chopped scallions
1 small jalapeno, minced
1/2 bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped
In large bowl, combine Girard’s Peach Mimosa Vinaigrette with remaining ingredients and gently toss.  Serve with favorite grilled fish, seafood or chicken.
