I'm excited to share with you a new take on salad dressing! It's easy to make a healthy salad not so healthy by adding a bunch of high-calorie salad dressing. Victoria's Garden Grown dressing proves salad dressing can be healthy and delicious with their unique take on salad dressing. Victoria's Garden Grown takes out oil as the main dressing ingredient, replacing it with a fresh combination of vegetables in their salad dressings. Combinations include Beet Vinaigrette, Kale Lemon Herb, Carrot Ginger, Red Bell Vinaigrette, Sweet Kale, and Spicy Red Bell Pepper. All ingredients are USDA Organic and non-GMO, as well as sourced in the US. And did I mention they are delicious?

I'm not a huge salad dressing connoisseur, but these gourmet combinations add definite flavor to my lettuce and kale salads. They are paired with the tasty flavors of vegetables such as red peppers, carrots and kale with a sprinkling of spices. And at only 15-20 calories per serving, Victoria's Garden Grown dressings make it possible to enjoy a yummy salad without cheating on your healthy eating plan. These salad dressings are a delicious, low-fat alternative to calorie rich dressings like blue cheese or ranch salad dressing.
Victoria's Garden Grown Red Bell Vinaigrette turned my lettuce and cucumber salad into a well rounded side dish. The dressing is perfectly tangy and spicy with minimal oils (if any at all) and free of artificial ingredients and synthetic sweeteners. These yummy gourmet salad dressings are locally made in California and are low sugar, low sodium, and naturally gluten free and vegan. You can find lots of delicious recipes to use with these dressings, one of my favorites is the Red Bell Vinaigrette on hummus.
I was surprised at how delicious the Kale Lemon Herb dressing is. My husband joked that I was putting kale on my kale salad, but this healthy salad dressing adds more than kale! The herbs and lemon mix perfectly with the earthy flavors to create a well rounded salad dressing.
Some of the dressings are on the sweeter side, perfect for salads that include berries, orange slices, or peaches. One of my favorite salad combinations includes kale, peaches and almonds, which would pair perfectly with the Sweet Kale or Red Bell Vinaigrette. Victora's Garden Grown dressings make it easy to whip up gourmet salads because the fresh dressings provide half the flavor! I sometimes struggle with what to put on a salad to make it interesting; cucumbers, tomatoes, snap peas, arugula, and basil all make great combinations.
You could also use this dressing as a light sauce on pasta. I haven't tried this yet, but the dressings flavors would pair wonderfully with chicken or sausage. If you are vegan you could add a dash of Victoria's salad dressings to your vegetable stir fry, in the place of soy sauce.
I always appreciate finding healthy alternatives that don't sacrifice flavor. Now if only I could convince my toddlers to eat salad! I believe food preferences grow with age and options like Victoria's Garden Grown dressings just might convince my 4 year old to try her lettuce! It's also perfect to drizzle over cooked sugar snap peas for a quick and healthy side dish. Try out these dressings for your own family. You are sure to find a favorite among the selection of fresh vegetable-made salad dressings!
