Wish-Bone Review and Giveaway

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Wish-Bone

“Delicious as a dressing, Remarkable as a Marinade” - Get More out of your Dressing.

I've been making a concerted effort to get dinner on the table and eat as a family lately, but this time of year is hard since we're gone a lot with sports practices and end of the school year activities. I need something I can fix without a lot of preparation time, but that isn't the same old thing each day.

Additionally, with the weather getting warmer (at least some days, anyway) it's time for some lighter fare and I learned about some great salad ideas from Wish-Bone.

When I was growing up, we had a salad at just about every dinner, and it was always in those wooden salad bowls. Wish-Bone was the only salad dressing I knew of, and as far as I knew there was Italian and French and we had it on lettuce, carrots and radishes when they were in season. I wasn't until later I found out about "exotic" flavors such as Thousand Island and Russian, but those went on lettuce, too.

Now, there's so many great Wish-Bone Dressing products and so much more you can create and use it for such as marinades, sandwiches and lots of different salads beyond just lettuce. As a matter of fact, each Wish-Bone Salad Dressing bottle comes with a recipe right on it.

I received a variety of Wish-Bone products and we (OK, OK, Busy Girl did it)


made (there's a reason I'm not a food stylist) Mandarin Chicken Salad:


Creamy Red Potato Salad:


Easy Mediterranean Pasta Salad:


They all turned out great!

The Mandarin Chicken Salad has an unexpected combination of ranch dressing and orange marmalade, and it really works for the salad. It wasn't as big of a kid favorite as the other two recipes, but the adults loved it.

Potato Salad is it's own food group here in the South, and the Creamy Red Potato Salad did not disappoint, the whole family gave it a thumb's up. It has simple ingredients and didn't take long to prepare. I will probably add a little more mustard to it next time, but it won't be in the fridge for long!

The Easy Mediterranean Pasta Salad is Busy Girl's personal favorite and the rest of us aren't allowed in it. However, I did sneak some, it's great and hearty enough for a meal. There's not a carbohydrate that is safe from my 12 year old son, so I venture a guess that it won't be around long, either.

  • Wish Bone Italian dressing is THE ONLY salad dressing my husband (and the rest of his family for the record) will use. Before I met my husband, I used to use that same dressing and marinate my chicken in it. djw209 at gmail.com

  • we love a great stir-fry every now and then with or without meat.

    It's easy to make with Wishbone Light Italian dressing.

    Combine 1/2 cup Wishbone Light Italian salad dressing, 1 Tablespoon soy sauce, and 2 tsp. ground ginger. Add to your stir-fried meat and vegetables.

    Serve over rice or even as a wrap.

  • The Italian dressing is great to marinate pork chops in before grilling them.
    Or, as a kid, we had shake & bake pork chops, then used the Italian dressing as a dipping sauce.


    By Blogger nashvegas, At 10:29 AM, May 20, 2009  

  • We use it on salads alot but I also like to marinate with it. I marinate beef, chicken and chops with Italian or Viniagrette. It adds great flavor to the meat.

  • This sounds gross but I swear you will lick the plate. It was born of a poor social worker's bare cupboards. But wait until fall. Nothing like this is good in the summer in the south.

    Wishbone Robust Italian dressing, a can of cream of mushroom soup, 6 pork chops, and a crockpot. I don't know what happens in the dark crockpot between the soup (and I'm not a cream of mush soup casserole person) and the dressing but it makes this amazing gravy-ish thing - serve it all over noodles or rice. Yum!

  • I marinate chicken and I also use Wish Bone dressing in a variety of potato salads instead of mayo, it's my favorite summer time trick. potatoes with radishes,snap pees and Wish Bone Italian dressing

    Being a vegetarian does limit my recipes lol, but I love to make a huge, cold spinach salad with cooked wild rice, sliced blanched almonds and Wish Bone Italian drizzled all over. Sprinkle a few shakes of Parmesan cheese and cracked white pepper for a GREAT healthy summer time meal!

  • A really great easy recipe that my whole family loves (got it from Publix food stores, have to give them credit)

    1 cup Wishbone ceasar salad dressing
    1 tsp of Italian seasoning (in the tube in your vegetabel section)
    1 bag of peas

    Microwave peas until they are hot, add the Wishbone and Italian seasoning.

  • I mix 1 cup of their Ranch dressing with 1/4 cup of grated Parmesean, 2 cups of leftover grilled or boiled chicken (diced or chopped into 1/2 inch or smaller pieces), and 4-5 cups of shredded romaine lettuce and I get the worlds most fabulous chicken caesar salad in MINUTES.

    This is really important to me because I work a full time job and so does my hubby, so by the time I get home it’s around 5:30 p.m. and I have a starving hubby coming home at 6:00 p.m. and two starved kids waiting for me.
