Kowalski's Fresh Salad Dressings

For some, the best part of cake is icing. Some like the gravy better than the potatoes. If, in the case of salad, you also like the dressing best of all, we're with you – especially now. Fans of our traditional salad dressing lineup will be pleased to find five new refrigerated flavors to enjoy in the Produce Department, made from our own secret recipes with garden-fresh ingredients like real garlic, peppers and onions, handfuls of fresh herbs and real cheese. Using modern technology more commonly applied to fresh juices, soups and salsas, these bottles are treated with high-pressure processing – never heat – to ensure top quality.

While all five flavors are fantastic, fans of some of our most popular deli salads will be pleased that the dressings for Thai Chicken Pasta Salad, Asian Napa Salad and Herbed Coleslaw are among the varieties offered. Because they're made like homemade, they naturally separate, so just shake 'em up and pour 'em out. Your summer salads just got fabulously fresh!

Look for these tasty salad savers, arriving very soon to all our markets:

ASIAN NAPA – A sweet and tangy vinaigrette with a touch of soy sauce, it's been a family and customer favorite for years. Try it in our recipe for Grilled Napa Salad.

THAI PEANUT – A spicy-sweet blend with fresh cilantro, chiles and green onion, this makes any salad – greens, pasta or chicken – a tasty adventure. Try it in our recipe for Thai 10-Layer Dip.

MEXI-RANCH – A classic ranch with authentic spices, fresh cilantro and jalapeño peppers. It's also great on tacos and nachos! Try it in our recipe for Grilled Avocados with Pico de Gallo.

STEAKHOUSE BLUE – Creamy buttermilk blue is better with a bit of garlic and a hint of black pepper. Try it in our recipe for Grilled Tomatoes with Steakhouse Blue Dressing.

HERBED SLAW – This is a sweet and zesty slaw dressing made with an abundance of fresh herbs. Try it in one of our "slaw" salad recipes, your favorite slaw mix or even use it to dip chicken tenders!

Selection and availability of products and ingredients vary by market.

Made fresh daily with natural ingredients, fresh ripened avocados and the perfect amount of spices and garlic. Look for both Clasico and Caliente guacamole varieties in the Produce Department. It's great served up with our Signature Signature Tortilla Chips.
