Wish-Bone Salad Spritzer Red Wine Mist Cabernet Vinaigrette Dressing

rworange | Jul 22, 200703:40 PM     1

Lame advertising campaign aside, this particular salad dressing tastes good for a bottled dressing.

I actually bought it last month just for the bottle ... I wanted a spritzer bottle to use to make my own vinagrette. Since I figured these bottles were designed to handle an oil/vinegar combo, it appealed to me.

I can't recommend any of the others because I haven't tried them and with the exception of the Red Wine Mist, all the others have HFCS as the first ingrediant.

The Red Wine Mist has water and red wine vinegar first. It is light and slightly tangy ... I can't believe I'm saying this ... not too acidic being balanced by the HFCS ... yeah ... throw me off Chowhound now.

Hey ... hey ... it also has cabernet sauvignon wine and onion juice ... I'm sure that offsets the red dye 40

Anyway ... making your own, of course, is better. The bottle works well with my home-made vinagrette. But if you must buy a bottled salad dressing this is a little better taste-wise than the rest. Despite the HFCS it is only 10 calories per serving ... 10 spritzes ... which is adequate for a salad.

Really ... at your own risk ... click on the "Putting on the Spritz" fashion show. I didn't watch the video since the picture of the woman dressed in carrots ... carrot mini dress, necklace and hat was quite enough of an experiance ... the designers were challenged to create runway-worthy fashions from salad ingrediants ... from the site

"From the coutour-inspired red cabbage leaf frock to the fun and fruity bathing suit the pieces really dazzled"

It is worth it though to go through the five pictures ... the little Carmen Miranda number ... picture three ... had me tearing up in laughter ... and if possible ... the next one was even worse ... seemingly inspired by Glenda the good witch from the Wizard of Oz ... in drag.

The Lucille Ball type of cocktail dress out of the red cabbage was the best of the lot. There's such a thing as an ad campaign getting atteniton ... but in a bad way. This is now neck in neck with the king from Burger King as one of the creepiest ads.
