We are no strangers to the Kraft Dressing aisle in the grocery store. My husband tops his salad exclusively with Thousand Island dressing so every few trips I’m adding a bottle to our cart (sometimes I even surprise him with the Thousand Island with Bacon variety). Growing up my Mom always had at least one open bottle of Catalina in the fridge at all times. It definitely rubbed off on me as Catalina is the dressing I reach for most often.
A few weeks ago I noticed that Kraft had updated their labeling to read “Anything Dressing”. At first I was a little confused by the change but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. We already had been using the Kraft dressings for more than just our salads. We’ve used the honey mustard dressing as dip for chicken nuggets, many of the ranch dressings to dip our veggies, Italian dressing in pasta salads, just to name a few.
Kraft Dressing is for more than your salad!
There was a weekend of football stretching ahead of us and I knew we’d need snacks for all of them. We have a few favorites that are always in rotation, but every once in awhile I like to change it up and serve some new options. Fried cheese sticks sounded like a good idea, and fried cheese sticks with a dipping sauce sounded like an even better idea! Most restaurants that serve those fried onions with the break-off petals also serve that yummy horseradish dipping sauce. Awhile ago we discovered that you can make a pretty similar version with just four ingredients, one of which being Thousand Island dressing.
Bubbles and I hit up Walmart to get the items we needed. She makes such an excellent shopping partner. She loves it when I hand her the item and she can turn and place it in the cart behind her. We were able to find everything we needed – plus a few extra items – quickly and easily. Checking out was slightly less quick as I had to go through the actual checkout instead of self checkout. I needed to pick up a gift card to go with my brother’s birthday present and I find it’s an easier task in a regular lane. You can check out our entire shopping experience in my Google+ album.
When we got home I made the dip. It only takes about five minutes to make; it’s literally pour and mix. Pour all the ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until combined. I like to chill it for an hour or two before serving to let the flavors meld. It actually took longer to cook the cheese sticks than it did to make the dip!

Curious how you can incorporate Kraft dressings with your meals, other than drizzling it over your salad? If you send a tweet to @KraftDressing with the ingredient you want to use plus the hashtag #dresscipe and Kraft will tweet you a meal idea! Very cool, huh? You can also keep an eye on the product demonstrations at your local Walmart. They’re doing tastings with the dressings and giving you some ideas on use!
Do you have a recipe you making using Kraft Dressings? What ingredient would you ask Kraft to give you a suggestion for?
