Now you know me, I like to make just about everything myself. However there are also products I liked to have on hand. I have some sauces, ketchups, mustards, mayonaise and things like that. They come in handy even though I make many of these items from scratch too. I used to have salad dressings in my refrigerator too but I’ve not found many gluten free ones that I liked.
I had just found the Simply Dressed Salad Dressings from Marzetti literally the week before they contacted me to review their products. I liked the fact I could read the ingredients and knew what they were. You can find these dressings in the refrigerated sections because they are not full of preservatives that keep dressings shelf stable. I told them I was just about to try these products and if I liked them I would share my experience. I warned them I’m very opinionated and tell it like I see it and they still agreed.
So here is the disclaimer: “I was one of six bloggers selected by T. Marzetti Company to be a Simply Dressed Ambassador. They compensated for my time however, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.”
Many of these dressings are gluten free but not all of them so you need to do a little research. When looking at the products online, look for this marking: Gluten Free
Or you can use this list I’ve created here for their Simply Dressed line. I would recommend to the company that they just go ahead and mark the jars gluten free so when shopping we know which ones to buy. It was however great to be able to get so much information on their website. Some of their dressings have dairy in them so I’ve not tasted those dressings. If you have please let me know about your experience.

These Simply Dressed Salad Dressings are not gluten free:
Thousand Island Salad Dressing -This one I am not really sure why it’s not listed as gluten free. I’ve not tasted this dressing since it’s brand new.
I tried all of the gluten-free dressings that are gluten and dairy free. The Pomegranate, Strawberry Poppyseed and Balsamic were my favorite. I’ve used them in many salads and other recipes that I will be sharing soon. The Champagne was OK but not my favorite and I did not like the coleslaw dressing which I found very interesting because I grew up on the original Marzetti Slaw Dressing. After looking through their site I see that this original slaw dressing is gluten free so if you eat soy you can try that version.
On the Marzetti website they have all of their products listed with nutritional information. They also have lots of recipes and even recipe booklets you can download including the Simply Dressed Recipe Book. Keep in mind this was not written to be gluten free so make adjustments where needed.
Coming this month and the next month I’ll share some of my recipes using the Marzetti Simply Dressed Salad Dressings and I have a special Simple Salad prize pack giveaway. So start thinking about your Simply Salad Recipes you’ll want to share.Print This Recipe
