I’m Taking A Step Back and Eating Lighter With Wishbone Salad Dressings!


WOW, can you believe we are already into 2017? When I say I had a great Holiday I really did and I hope you and your family did too! But now it’s time for me to step back and start eating healthier and lighter. I sure I must have consumed everything I could eat during the holidays, sweets, cakes, cookies, soda and much more.

This year I have vowed to eat more veggies and add more salads to my meals so that’s what I’m focusing on today, finding the perfect salads and dressings that I want to try out.

Today, I may have found just what I want to start off with and it’s from one of my favorite companies, Wishbone! Now Wishbone has a new set of dressings that I have never seen before called Ristorante Italiano Roasted Garlic Balsamic Dressing .

I found a dish I can’t wait to prepare with one of these Ristorante Dressing, plus it also has cauliflower included. It’s called: Marinated Cauliflower Steaks. Can you say, MMM,MMM,GOOD! I love how simple this meal is and how I can still implement my veggies. It only takes a few minutes to prepare:

Prep Time 10 Minutes

  • Marinate Time 30 Minutes
  • Cook Time 15 Minutes

Ingredients   Serves 2


  1. Pour 1/2 cup Dressing over cauliflower in large bag; turning cauliflower to coat. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes. Remove cauliflower from bag.
  2. Grill, broil or pan fry cauliflower until golden brown and tender. Immediately sprinkle Cauliflower with Parmesan cheese.
  3. Serve, if desired, on salad greens and drizzle with additional dressing.

*How to cut cauliflower head into steaks: Place cauliflower, base side down, on a work surface. Using a very sharp knife, and starting at top center of cauliflower head, cut down the center of the cauliflower head to divide it in half. Then carefully cut four 3/4-inch thick slices (two off each half). Set cauliflower steaks aside.

My next choice for meal preparation this week will be the South-of-the Border Layered Taco Dip . Oooolala!

I’m sure my entire family will enjoy this meal, after all everyone loves taco’s and this particular meal with the Wishbone  South-of-the Border Ranch Dressing will definitely add a new twist of flavor to it! Just look at this dish, don’t your mouth waters…lol!

Well as with many of Wishbone’s meals, this too is very easy to prepare:

Prep Time 15 minutes

Ingredients   Makes 4 cups

  • 1 can (15 oz.) low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tbsp.  fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup shredded low fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Wish-Bone® South-of-the Border Ranch Dressing
  • 3 cups taco toppings, such as shredded lettuce, diced avocado and diced tomato


  1. Place beans and cilantro in food processor. Process until smooth.
  2. Spread beans in bottom of 1-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese and 1/4 cup Wish-Bone® South of the Border Ranch.
  3. Layer your favorite taco toppings on top. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup Dressing. Serve with your favorite corn tortilla chips.
