GIVE AWAY - Girard's Salad Dressings (and review)

A while back, I was contacted to see if I'd like to receive some Girard's Salad Dressings to try, as they had 3 new flavors - Apple Poppyseed, Creamy Balsamic, and Peach Mimosa. They were also going to send their signature flavor, Champagne.

Now, I have to admit, I am not a big salad person. I like having my vegetables cooked. But I'd like to try liking salad more (usually I like salad when it's with ranch which is not the most healthy dressing, or something sweet like strawberry vinaigrette). So I thought, what a great opportunity to try something different - the Peach Mimosa really intrigued me!

Even though a review of the product was not required, I thought I would anyway because I want to share :)

My favorite, which is not surprising, is definitely the Peach Mimosa. Bear in mind that I have a sweet tooth, and this dressing is more on the sweet side than on the vinegary side (I don't like thing too sour - a combination of sweet and sour is good, but not just sour). My husband, who prefers vinegary dressing, thinks it's not bad. It's a prefect summer dressing I think, especially if you can add some fruits like strawberries or blueberries in the salad! I would definitely buy this again.

My second favorite is the Apple Poppyseed. I think it has an interesting combination of favor. I wasn't too sure of it at first, and it is a bit difficult to describe how it actually taste, but I like that it's a bit sweet and a bit savory. Husband also likes it okay, but thought he has had something similar before.

Husband definitely prefers the Creamy Balsamic and Champagne. I don't hate them, and would use them in my salad, they just wouldn't be my first choice. But I still like them better than some other dressings.

So overall, it was a fun trial, and I am very glad to have some more options than just ranch!
