Making dinner easy with Newman’s Own
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Newman’s Own. All opinions are 100% mine.
My kids love to “dip”. Pretty much everything, actually. We always have a bottle of ranch dressing in our refrigerator, and there’s house-wide panic if it starts to get too low.
One of our favorite dressings is Newman’s Own, and not only does it come in Ranch, but Balsamic, Olive Oil & Vinegar, Family Recipe Italian, Creamy Caesar and more.
As a mom, I love how simple salad dressings are to implement into dinners. It’s how I get my kids to eat most veggies, but it definitely doesn’t end there, because there are so many things that are dippable! Salad dressings make perfect dips, because they’re already made–just pull them out of the fridge and serve!
Whether it’s an after school snack of mixed peppers, carrot sticks on pizza night, or a side of broccoli and grape tomatoes for lunch, ranch dressing is right there! It’s not just for kids, though! When I host a party, I like to have a veggie tray option along with all of my other appetizers and hors d’oeuvres, and using salad dressing as a dip is super easy and yummy!
It’s doesn’t stop at salads and veggies though–you can also use their dressings as an easy meat marinade for the grill, or even in the crockpot.
One of the things that really love about Newman’s Own dressings is how easy it is to do good, since all of their profits go to charity. It means that I can serve my family delicious, high quality products, and help others at the same time. You just can’t beat that.
Their story starts in 1982, when Paul Newman started a tiny boutique operation – parchment labels on wine bottles filled with Paul’s own homemade salad dressing. Paul gave these to his neighbors as holidays gifts and from there it continued to grow. Over the course of 30 years, Newman’s Own has given away over $400 million to thousands of charities.
At our house, Newman’s Own salad dressings mean happy mom, happy kids!
