Do You Need a Great Italian Dressing Recipe?

We are a salad family. Salads are quick, easy to prepare, and a great way to get everyone in the family to eat their veggies! Salads are my go-to weeknight dinners – we eat them at least once a week. That’s why I was so excited when Kraft sent me a bottle of their new Zesty Italian Anything Dressing to sample for this post.

If you’re like me, you probably stick to a handful of trusty, reliable recipes. Well, Kraft wants to change that! They are on a mission to add some fun and flavor to your everyday meals. I mean, have you seen their Zesty Guy? Talk about getting a little zesty…in the kitchen, that is! And Kraft Zesty Italian Anything Dressing is sure to stir your burning (culinary) desires.

Kraft has some fantastic new recipes featuring their Zesty Italian Dressing. The Zesty Guy recommends the Zesty Italian Chicken Salad…so really, how could I resist? It’s simple, loaded with healthy stuff, and sounded delicious – all the things I look for in a recipe. So on Friday while the kids were at school, the Zesty Guy and I steamed up the kitchen with this amazing Italian dressing recipe.

You know how sometimes recipes turn out to be more complicated than they look? Well, I’m happy to tell you that wasn’t the case with Kraft’s Zesty Italian Chicken Salad. It really was easy to prepare. I blanched the asparagus (boiled for 3 minutes, then dunked in ice water) and chopped the veggies while the chicken was marinating – and then it was just a matter of cooking the chicken and assembling the salad. The recipe called for grilled chicken, but since a) our grill is broken, and b) we were in the middle of a torrential downpour, I butterflied and broiled it instead, and it turned out great.

I refrigerated the completed salad and served it for dinner the following night. My husband was worried that it would wilt or get soggy overnight, but it held up just fine. And it tasted great! My family of picky eaters loved it. My 7 year old declared her new-found love for spinach, and my husband even had seconds…and trust me, that’s saying a lot! Kraft has lots of other super recipes on their website. And since I still have some Zesty Italian Dressing left, I’m going to try the Primavera Pasta Toss next. It looks so good!
