Avocado dressing…Wait, no…

At first glance, it looks like avocado dressing, right?
After all, we’re visual people and labels on bottles and boxes tend to indicate what’s inside. Those pictures might be misleading in the sense of looking way more delicious on the outside. Usually it at least sort of represents what’s expected to be in there, though.
Not with this dressing. That large picture of an avocado is merely a suggestion of what to put the dressing on. Don’t put it on a salad like everybody else. No, no, just put it on an avocado!

At least they did clarify in the fine print, though, that it is a honey mustard dressing and doesn’t contain any avocados at all. I was lucky to pay attention in the store, but I wonder if their choice of marketing is why this was on closeout. How many people are going to be intrigued by an avocado salad dressing? And those who were…like me….are going to be disappointed after seeing what it really is.

What does your salad dressing say about you?

What your salad dressing says about you. Personality traits based on your favorite salad dressing choice.

    • Italian dressing (unidentified bits in the bottom) – You’re not much of an adventurer and it’s likely that Leonardo is your favorite ninja turtle.
    • French dressing – You’ve got quirk by the barrel full, but you write too much fan fiction.
    • Ceaser with bacon bits dressing – You’re a revel in the sense that you like to undermine things, such as the intention of a salad
    • Catalina dressing – You’re like the French dressing person but a little thinner.
    • Ranch dressing (colorful speckles, likely flecks from a precious stone) – You are a fun and pragmatic individual. There is no doubt that you’re using your ranch as both a dressing and dip.
    • Ranch with pepperbacon dressing – We should be friends.
    • Three cheese ranch dressing – You really don’t f*ck around, but won’t you let someone tame that wild heart of yours?
    • Thousand Island dressing – Stay away from my kids!
    • Blue cheese (with fine print that I can’t read) – Someone’s got carrot sticks in their crisper and a penchant for mischief.
    • Something vinegar or wine and olive oil – I bet you think you’re so healthy and ethically responsible, don’t you! Well that’s probably true. Good work!

So uh, I have a thing for sauces, in case you hadn’t noticed. If I’m at a restaurant and they offer me a sauce, I’m going to accept it. It doesn’t even matter if I’ve had another version that I didn’t like….I’m going to want to try this new one. I especially like new combinations I’ve never had. The most recent was a chunky bacon ranch.

Now I’m not the type who puts sauce all over everything, though. I just like dipping things like fries in them, to try them out, and then move on. I don’t know why or when the obsession with trying new ones started, but it is what it is and I like it.

Unfortunately, that means I like all of the dressings listed above (and may even mix a couple of them to create something entirely new….and it won’t be only for my salad either), which makes me appear even crazier than usual. Oops.

Lucky rabbit’s…ear? – Salad tossers for Easter

Salad tossers and servers that each fork and spoon looks like bunny ears

From Amazon

Is it wrong that I kinda want these?

For other people, I’m sure these would only make an appearance at Easter time as a novelty item. In case you haven’t noticed, I kinda do the bunny thing year round.

The only downside would be that I don’t actually use salad servers.

Which means there’s no doubt in my mind that these would be brought out when all the dishes are dirty. Solo. Each used as a extra large bunny ear eating utensil.

I wonder if I should tuck the other in my pocket as a good luck charm.
