Wish-Bone[R] Tosses Sophisticated Flavors into the Mix with Four New Distinct Dressings - for the Salad Bowl and Beyond.

Greek Vinaigrette, Bruschetta Italian, Superfruit Berry Vinaigrette and Mediterranean Italian Dressings Give Greens, Veggies, Fruits and Even Meats a Taste-Boost for Delicious Eating

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- It's a new year, and with it come resolutions to eat more veggie-rich meals. Now, thanks to Wish-Bone[R], going greens just got a whole lot tastier!

Introducing four sophisticated new dressing flavors from Wish-Bone: Greek Vinaigrette, Bruschetta Italian, Superfruit Berry Vinaigrette and Mediterranean Italian.

"As the new year kicks into gear, the trend toward eating well-balanced meals bursting with fruits and vegetables is gaining a greater foothold among Americans," said Sandra Woodruff, MS, RD, LD/N, nationally known dietitian and best-selling author of many books on nutrition. "With flavorful dressings tossed into the mix, eating greens and vegetables becomes a pleasure, not a chore."

The four new Wish-Bone dressings are great on greens, but they also go beyond the salad bowl, as marinades for meats, vegetables and fruits:

* Greek Vinaigrette, made with feta cheese and ripe black olives

* Bruschetta Italian, inspired by the classic appetizer and made with sun-ripened tomatoes and sweet basil

* Superfruit Berry Vinaigrette, with berry and pomegranate juices

* Mediterranean Italian, made with feta cheese and a refreshing squeeze of lemon

Not only has Wish-Bone enhanced its dressing offerings, it has also changed the bottles they come in. The new bottle has up to 20 percent less plastic than the previous one, so there is less impact on the environment while delivering the same amount of delicious taste.

The new flavors come in a 16-ounce size, in addition to an 8-ounce size for Greek Vinaigrette. They will be available on store shelves nationwide beginning February 2011, and will sell for a suggested retail price of $2.89.

The following recipes reflect just a few of the many ways Wish-Bone's new dressings dish out tempting flavors for delicious eating. Go to www.Wish-Bone.com additional recipes.
