I used Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Balsamic Salad Dressing for my salad, and I love that it has just a few ingredients and is preservative free. The flavors in the dressing blend perfectly with the strawberries and gorgonzola in the salad. I love the combination of savory and sweet! Marzetti has a variety of Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Salad Dressings that complement the flavors in any salad. They’re available in the refrigerated produce section of your grocery store, next to the Marzetti® Classic dressings.
