I want the wishbone!


This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Wish-bone.


Do you want to hear a 19-year-old health-nut/nutrition major scream?? Do you want to see her do the happy dance?

Have her open a HUGE box from the UPS man marked Wish Bone salad dressing in the corner. That will do the trick.

When I got home from school yesterday there was a box on my dining room table. Bitchy was home (after trying to kill me yesterday…) and after she received permission, she immediately opened the box, peeled back the bubble wrap and TA DA!!! Wish Bone Salad dressings. Yep- you heard me. A CASE of Wish Bone Salad dressings! There was Italian, Ranch, Lite Ranch, Blue Cheese, Lite Blue Cheese, Raspberry Vinaigrette, and Dijon Mustard. She literally screamed at the top of her lungs.

Needless to say, we are a family of salad eaters. We have SOME kind of salad with our meals each night – and I also love, love, love to throw something into the fridge to marinate that I can quickly throw on the grill when I get home. Bitchy decided that she needs to not walk me to death, but now wants to be in charge of our meals. THIS idea I loved. (She is a great cook- and CLEANS up after herself. Yep, you heard right…)

She made three dishes for us over the weekend. According to her, they were fairly quick and easy.

Italian Chicken Kabobs marinated in Italian Dressing.

Ranch Chicken and Bacon Salad (Ranch dressing) (They put ranch on EVERYTHING; AND hot sauce - it's the secret weapon ladies...)

Antipasto Salad (with the Balsamic Vinaigrette) (This was my personal fav.)

  1. Yay! I love giveaways! I am rather bland with my salad dressings, though, and only use them on salads. We eat salad almost daily, though, so use plenty o' dressing!

  2. Oooh! I love this!

    My favorite thing to do with dressing is to marinate steak or chicken and even fish (though I don't marinate the fish) in Italian dressing. Wishbone's Italian is perfect, too.

    So, here's what I do when it's time for some tilapia (my favorite fish at the moment). Use a 9x12 inch glass baking dish and lay your filets out neatly (neatness counts!). Shake up the Italian dressing really well and then pour on fish. There should be just enough dressing to fully cover each piece, but not enough to drown it. Next, add a quick sprinkle of parmesan cheese to the fish and a couple turns of the old peppermill. Pop this into the oven for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. Fish should be lightly browned and flake at the touch of a fork. If needed, bake a couple minutes longer.

    Serve over brown rice and with a side of your favorite steamed fresh veggies.

    And send me that card!

    P.S. Come visit and I will make you this and a couple of martinis. Either that, or fly me out and I'll be your personal chef/bartender for an extended period of time.

  3. I also marinade with the dressing. I love to do meat and veggies for kabobs on the grill. I like to do tenderloins before roasting. I even mix some dressing into hambugers before grilling in the summer to up the flavor a little. Once in awhile-I just dunk big croutons into a small bowl of French dressing-and eat them as a snack

  4. I'm sorta boring with my culinary skills, I use Wishbone on salads, in pasta salad and to marinate chicken.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Our very favorite is to marinate chicken (kids prefer only the legs) in Wishbone Italian and grill it. They won't use any other brand. It's a fond childhood memory for my kids that they have carried into their adult years. "Dad's Chicken Legs" they call it - and they call home to tell us every time they fix it. Great taste, but even greater memories.

  6. I love to put wishbone dressings on my sandwiches. Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  7. We're another family that marinates with it. When I buy the large family size packages of meat, I break them up into smaller portions to freeze. Then I put the dressing in the bag with the meat before freezing it. That way, when I take the meat out of the freezer to thaw, it's already happily sitting in its marinade.

    Thanks for hosting a great giveaway!

  8. That "Open to US residents" thing really frosts my poptarts.

  9. I also marinate with it and use it in pasta salads. Pretty boring, but it sure does taste good!

    ReplyDelete
  10. We love to use Italian dressing to flavor steamed veggies. I am hungry just thinking about all that dressing. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  11. We go through a large vat of Wishbone Ranch dressing just about weekly with my two kids. Our favorite recipe though is Ranch potatoes.

    Take new potatoes and boil whole (after washing of course). Once cooked to the point of a soft fork entry drain the water. Cut the potatoes into chunks. Add Wishbone Ranch dressing, bacon bits, green onions, and stir until well coated. Super easy, simple, and delish!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well I am afraid I don't have any new and exciting ways to use Wishbone salad dressings. My favorite is pasta salad. I use whole wheat pasta, cubed grilled chicken or rotisserie chicken, capers, sundried tomatoes, sweet basil and balsamic vinegarette. It gets better overnight in the fridge.

  14. oops! I had a typo. :)

    I love giveaways!!! John uses Italian dressing on his hoagies instead of oil. A whole lot more flavor that way!

  15. My husband can't live w/out Wishbone French. I even have to sneak it in when we go out to dinner! He puts it on everything.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love to use the classic Italian as a marinade for my chicken or steak. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ya know, I'd do a lot better at linking this site from my site if I could just figure out how to get the friggin' Wishbone bottle to link! I hate being computer challenged!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ooohhh...yummy!! We saute chicken in Italian dressing and then serve it over linguine with a little red sauce and some garlic toast and a salad (with FF Italian or ranch, depending on which family member is eating it)!! Totally easy meal but my kids both LOVE it!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I always use Wishbone Italian dressing as a marinade for my chicken thighs before I throw them on the grill. YUMMMM!

    Great contest!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love using French Dressing as a dipping sauce for Artichokes. I also love using Fat Free Italian dressing for roast potatoes. And lastly, I love pouring Ranch dressing over an avocado and tomato salad!!! Hope I win!!!!

  21. Just like the last 200 commenters, I marinate with Wishbone Zesty Italian. (It has to be Zesty, though!) It makes the best chicken evah! We grill it and then make the most awesome chicken cesear salad wraps. Yum!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I saw a lot of chicken up above, and that is my *favorite* way to make it - with the Robusto Italian.

    Chicken wings or thighs (skin side down)- in pyrex baking dish (sprayed with Pam first). Cook on slow oven (325 - 350 degrees) for an hour - turning once. Drain off the liquid from the chicken. Turn the chicken again, pour on the Wishbone, and sprinkle lightly with garlic salt. Cook another 1/2 an hour, and turn again (skin side up again). Add more Wishbone, and sprinkle with the garlic salt. We make *huge* quantities of this dish for parties, and it is always the biggest hit.

    To serve with the chicken: Zucchini - cut in 1/4 inch strips the LONG way. Marinade in the Wishbone for an hour. Then throw the zucchini directly onto a hot grill, brushing with more of the Wishbone. Grill both sides evenly until zucchini is tender. Delicous!

  32. I love the Italian to marinate chicken or beef before grilling. My husband also uses the Thousand Island as his own special sauce on hamburgers. My favorite has to be a big chef salad with plain ranch, YUM!!

  33. My vegetarian daughter cannot each a vegetable without dousing it with Wishbone Italian salad dressing! No Wishbone Italian Salad Dressing - then she's not eating her vegetables. You can see the problem here, as she's vegetarian. We never run out as she might, well, starve.

  34. I use the Western Bacon in a warm potato salad. I also use the Asian Vinaigrette in my stir fries.

  37. Y'know...I was gonna say you people are weird, but then I realized that I, too, squeal with joy and do the happy dance when big boxes of bottles arrive at my house. Although mine are full of Downy Wrinkle Release spray. (I really hate to iron.)

  39. I'm not much of a cook, but I LOVE Wish-Bone Italian!!

    My daughter does make a delish pasta and chicken dish. She marinates diced chicken in Wish-Bone Italian and then sautes it until it's done. Put that over your pasta (we prefer angel hair) and then douse everything with more dressing. Very easy and very tasty.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm actually not a HUGE salad fan except for taco salad (with Catalina dressing) and my own creation of spinach leaves, pistacio nuts, dried cranberries, feta cheese, and Balsamic Vinegarette (a staple at all of my parties), but I LOVE salad dressing and since we are trying to "cut back" on late night munching without taking up smoking to to deal with the nighttime munching fixation we've taken to chomping on baby carrots with some low fat dressing...blue cheese for me and french or thousand island for hubby.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Child dips everything in salad dressing. It's the other mother's other little helper.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Of course, I marinate chicken in Wishbone Italian all the time. But my secret potato salad recipe includes it, too! While the potatoes are still warm, drizzle them generously with the dressing. Let the potatoes cool while the Wishbone yumminess soaks in. Then, and only then, add mayo, hard-boiled eggs, onion, celery, DILL pickles, and black olives.

    Oh, d*mn. I just gave away the secret recipe.

    Being a vegetarian limits my recipes lol, but one of my fav's is to make a huge cold spinach salad with wild rice and sliced blanched almonds, and drizzle with WishBone Italian and a few shakes of parmesan cheese!
    Fast, healthy and tasty!

  48. My favorite way is to use it as a pasta salad recipe.

    For Bitchy:
    Use your favorite Wish bone vinaigrette (Italian is great here)
    Pasta (whole wheat pasta is great)
    Black olives
    Zucchini/broccoli
    Carrots (shredded or diced)
    Red or yellow pepper
    Artichoke hearts

    Thank you for the contest.

  57. I love to make a chicken pot pie (or mock chicken pot pie) my mixing the Italian with some cream cheese and putting the chicken, the veggies, the cream cheese and dressing mixture in a dish. Put one crust over it and bake. (One crust is half the calories). Mmm. Delish!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I use the Italian to make pasta salad and marinate and also in my dressings. I use the Ranch with fresh ground peppercorn, cherry tomatoes and crumbled bacon (the pre-cooked type you get at Costco) to make a BLT salad. It's GOOD.

    I really enjoyed the comments on this :) Lots of new ideas.

  60. One of our favorite salads is with sliced grilled steak. It must have greek olives and avocado, lots of tomatoes, cukes and shaved parmesan cheese. I like using a good Italian dressing with this. Yum-yum.

    Also, for years and years when my Dad made grilled chicken he would brush it with French dressing. It's really good!

    ReplyDelete
  61. This is very simple but something that my grandmother always did when I was growing up and eating it reminds me of her - I use Italian dressing on sliced cucumbers. Simple, tasty and so refreshing. It was an after school treat that I looked forward to sharing with my grandma.

  62. Other than using Wishbone Ranch to dip our vegies in, I use Italian dressing to cook chicken in. Delish!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have a chicken salad I like to make. Baby spring greens with water chestnuts, slices of roasted chicken breast, slices of strawberry and a tiny little drizzle of Wish-Bone Raspberry Hazelnut. I eat 12 pounds of this at time. YUM.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I use Italian dressing to marinade just about everything. It's also really good on taco salad. Chicken kabobs in Italian dressing or balsamic vinegarette. Ranch dressing as a dip for anything. Always bleu cheese on salad, though, unless it's grilled chicken ceasar salad!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I mix 1 cup of their Ranch dressing with 1/4 cup of grated Parmesean, 2 cups of leftover grilled or boiled chicken (diced or chopped into 1/2 inch or smaller pieces), and 4-5 cups of shredded romaine lettuce and I get the worlds most fabulous chicken caesar salad in MINUTES.

    This is really important to me because I work a full time job and so does my hubby, so by the time I get home it’s around 5:30 p.m. and I have a starving hubby coming home at 6:00 p.m. and two starved kids waiting for me.

    Toss all veggies in a bowl with Wish-Bone Italian dressing.

    Now on the boring side, I like vinaigrettes on salad. On the slightly more interesting side, dressings like Ranch or Caesar go great in salad wraps or those tortilla roll sandwich things (sorry don't know what they are actually called).

    Salad Wrap - Take a tortilla, warm it slightly (makes it easier to roll, a few seconds in the microwave usually does the trick), you don't want it hot, just loosened up so it will roll.
    Fill with salad, veggies, and your favorite cooked salad meat cut into bite sized pieces (I like chicken breast, salad shrimps, ham or turkey), and top with your favorite dressing. Roll it up like a burrito and enjoy!

    For the rolls: Take a tortilla, again warming slightly. Spread a thin layer of dressing on the tortilla. Layer with your favorite sandwich fixings in a thin layer - deli sliced meats, sliced or shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, whatever. Then start at one side and roll to the other. Slice the log into 1 to 1 1/2 inch circles & enjoy!

  111. I too love Wishbone salad dressings. I enjoy using the Italian dressing on my salads and marinating different meats with it. I enjoy using Ranch dressing not only on my salad also but also as a dip. Hot wings, vegetables, I even dip crackers and french fries in it. I have even used the Ranch dressing to make potato salad with. My hubs enjoys using French dressing with his salad.
