When I think about dressing and food, I always associate it with salads. Who wouldn’t, right? I was recently asked to try out Kraft Anything Dressing for something other than salads – specifically, as a dipping sauce.
Since I was thinking beyond using the Kraft Anything Dressing for just a salad, I tasked myself with changing up our weekend meals by trying out three fabulous dressings. I visited my local Walmart in hope that it would be one of the stores that was hosting a demo throughout this month to try out the product. Sadly, my store did not but you should stop by your local store to see if they are hosting a demo! Never fear if your store does not host a demo, Kraft also has a great Anything Dressing website to reference that provided so many options for dressing usage.
Shopping the dressing aisle at Walmart was seriously overwhelming. We tend to stick to your basic Italian so I was looking at this experience with a pretty narrow mindset. You can check out my entire shopping experience by visiting my Google+ album, but WOW on the options!
I was then in some rarely charted territory for me… Pita Bread. Since I had no clue what I was doing, I just grabbed the wheat variety and called it a day.
Here is how we branched out a bit with our food this weekend:
Super Dip-able snack
I wanted to try something that would be a great dipping snack, so I visited the Kraft Anything Dressing website for some ideas. With football season underway, what better snack could there be beside the Easy Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip #dresscipe? Don’t laugh, but I’ve never made a Buffalo Chicken Dip before. It really is as simple as the recipe suggests!
- 1 Kraft Anything Dressing Honey Mustard
- 3/4 lb Deli turkey
- 3/4 lb Deli ham
- 1/2 lb Deli cheese
- Pita Pockets
Slice Pita Pockets in half. Spread dressing inside. Fold in desired amount of meats, lettuce and tomato.
We did a “Make Your Own” Pita sandwich for lunch.
I tried adding the dressing before stuffing the pita as well as after and found that adding the dressing prior to stuffing was easier to do.
Easy Dinnertime Grilling
We recently had a great sale on London Broil at our local supermarket so of course I have a few frozen in my freezer. With such a busy weekend of deck work ahead of my husband, this was the perfect time to thaw that piece of meat out for a quick, marinade grilling recipe.
- 1.5lb London Broil
- 1 Kraft Anything Dressing Zesty Italian
Place London Broil in container. Pour dressing over meat until submerged and seal with lid. Shake container to make sure the dressing has covered the meat. Refrigerate for 24 hours, then grill to desired wellness.
As our sides, I made roasted potatoes and mixed veggies in olive oil. We also had a small salad to compliment our meal. I couldn’t resist using the Honey Mustard dressing for my salad.
