Sorry for the lack of posting on Friday. I genuinely forgot what day we were on and it wasn’t until I was halfway through Friday I realized I hadn’t written anything and, rather than then posting on Saturday and risking further mix up, I skipped.
So salad dressing. I haven’t actually had the store bought version of this stuff. Haven’t had the McDonald’s salad it’s supposedly attached to either, but I have a feeling the gist is easy to grasp. What I have had is the Newman’s Own Southwest dressing which comes in those little pouches from McDonald’s in spite of not eating one of their salads. My wife was making a salad for a party and forgot to buy dressing, so she went through the drive through (thru?) and they just gave her some packets.
It’s okay. Kinda creamy like a Ranch but not as spicy. Well, spicy but in a hot way not a peppery way. And not really even a great spicy. Just hot in the mouth. Like those old Warhead candies hot. Maybe. It’s been a while. The dressing gets the job done just fine, and in a salad with corn and tortilla slivers and other “southwest” things, it’s not a bad substitute. However, in the way I don’t feel remotely healthy when I order a taco salad, say, I felt I could have eaten a burger and saved myself some calories.
