Thank You Joni and Girard's!

I entered a contest for Girard's Salad dressing over at Joni's Red Couch Recipes and I won.  I was so excited to have won.  I received a package of these four wonderful salad dressings this week, so I thought I would tell you how tasty they are.  The box had one bottle each of Champagne, Apple Poppyseed, Creamy Balsamic, and Peach Mimosa Girard's salad dressing.  I have tasted each one and they are all delicious!   The Champagne has a rich full taste that would stand up well with cheese and fruit in a salad.   The Apple Poppyseed is the sweetest and would taste fantastic with bacon and the literature suggests Sorrel, Endive, and Frisee'.  The Peach Mimosa is really unique.  It is a combination of white wine vinegar and peachesThe literature suggested it would pair nicely with arugula.  And last, the Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette is suggested to be tried with bibb lettuce and they also show it with a pasta salad which looks amazing.

Girard's sent this nice little fine dining guide.  It has a pull out table setting guide, tips on hosting a fine dinner party, and recipes too.  

So, with all of these great new salad dressings, what did I have for dinner?  Well I had some romaine, spinach, blueberries, and almonds with the Apple Poppyseed dressing and it was delicious!
Thanks Joni and Girard's!
