Favorite Friday Product!

Favorite Friday Product!

Today’s favorite product of the week is Bolthouse  Farms® creamy yogurt and olive oil vinaigrettes!  They are low in calories and have wonderful flavor!  Plus they are one of the lowest dressings (I have seen) in sodium content.

My favorites are Caesar and Honey Mustard!  They are also great in your favorite wrap – chicken Caesar, honey mustard ham, Rueben with thousand island, spicy buffalo chicken with blue cheese and more – get creative!

The vinaigrettes are made with olive oil – a great source of monounsaturated fats – helpful in increasing your HDL (healthy) cholesterol.
