There are a few foods that I absolutely adore and can't get enough of: feta cheese, buffalo chicken dip, bbq chicken enchiladas, watermelon jam, ice cream, the chocolate cake recipe I made for my dad's birthday. I agreed to review Marzetti's new Simply Dressed line of refrigerated salad dressings because one of the flavors is Greek Feta. I thought (and still think) that it could be my new favorite salad dressing, but I didn't get to try that one. Greek Feta is not carried in any grocery stores near me. I wish it was. Feta dressing on a salad topped with feta cheese would be pretty darn amazing. (Because you know that I top every salad I eat with feta cheese, right?) Hopefully some day. The only Simply Dressed flavors I could find locally were ranch, blue cheese, and coleslaw. I found them in the refrigerated section of the produce aisle, with the other Marzetti's dressings and the bagged salad mix. When life gives you blue cheese, make buffalo something. That's a real saying, right?
Marzetti's Simple Dressed Blue Cheese Salad Dressing is nice. It has a good flavor and a nice consistency. It doesn't contain anything awful – no preservatives, no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, no MSG, no artificial flavors, and no artificial colors, the bane of my personal existence since I'm allergic to red dye #40. I expect blue cheese dressing to be thick, almost like mayonnaise pouring out of a bottle. Isn't that what all blue cheese dressing is supposed to be like? Simple Dressed Blue Cheese isn't even close to being that thick, but I enjoyed it anyway. The flavor is very mild, almost like a blend of ranch flavors and blue cheese flavors. I really liked that.
Since we've agreed that the saying is, when life gives you blue cheese, make buffalo something, I used the blue cheese dressing to make this cheese ball:
