Girard's makes a wide variety of salad dressings, I think about 20 in all. Girard's began in the mid 1930's with an original French salad dressing. With its popularity, Wilfred Girard opened Girard's French Restaurant in San Francisco.
The salad dressing company has been bought and sold a few times moving up and down the California coast to its current home in Los Angeles.
So famous for high quality ingredients and their trademark triangle bottles, these dressings are great. My favorite is the Light Caesar dressing.
On grocery shopping day, I buy an assortment of vegetables and chop them up and put them in individual glad containers and store them in the refrigerator. During the week, my family's favorite appetizer is to dip the fresh vegetables in the salad dressing. A confession---- Wheat Thins and Triscuits taste pretty good "dipped" as well. Makes me feel better when our dinner may not include enough vegetables, it's a fun way to get your daily.
Try it and you will LOVE it. It is sold in most grocery stores or online at
