It's Salad Season! See the Lite + Giveaway

May 27, 2016 Baltimore, MD, USA

This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Litehouse Foods. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.


Summer time means salad season. Fresh veggies, delicious fruits and warm nights, spent enjoying outdoor meals with family and friends. To make your fresh meal burst with flavor, make something real, with something real: Litehouse dressings. In the refrigerated produce section, where real dressing should be.

I love May—it means spring giving way to early summer—warm, sunny, humidity-free days and farmer's markets offering fresh produce—perfect for my renewed health/weight goals.


Except this year, May didn't look that way, at least not in Baltimore. We had three weeks of straight rain and chilly temps. While I refused to bring my boots back out, I was wearing tights with my dresses which I equally detested. It also meant no farmer's market trips or extra long walks with Anise.

Thankfully, all the rain does mean fresh ingredients can grow—I just had to get them from our local grocer's produce aisle: salad mix, granny smith apples, celery, bleu cheese dressing...



Yes, I said it. No, I'm not mistaken. Litehouse dressing is as fresh as the produce and thus I get it from the produce aisle. It's refrigerated since it lacks the excessive preservatives that allow other dressings to hang out on grocery store shelves for indefinite amounts of time. 

When you shop for produce, you don’t shop in the condiment or baking aisle. You head to the refrigerated section where mouth-watering fresh veggies are brimming with color and flavor. That is where you will find Litehouse: fresh tasting, refrigerated and delicious dressings. 

I'm eating a lot more salad these days with my personal goals in mind and I prefer my dressing homemade for the very reasons I just mentioned. I often whip up a quick vinegarette at home, but when you're eating salad daily, it's great to have variety and indulge in a creamy bleu cheese (or ranch, we have that, too!) that I know is as good as homemade since it lacks the icky stuff!

This week, spring finally came. I took Anise out for a long walk before rushing to the fridge to put together this yummy salad in celebration: my go to spinach/spring greens mix topped with celery, apple, pecans, and dried cranberries, all tossed in the perfect complement: Litehouse's chunky bleu cheese dressing. .Litehouse Inc. is a leader in refrigerated salad dressings, veggie dips, sauces and Instantly Fresh™ Herbs.



I'll be making this one a lot more often: bleu cheese pairs perfectly with the toppings I chose...it also pairs perfectly with a glass of bubbly, making my summer dinner delicious and complete!
