We eat our fair share of salad dressing around here and Kraft Anything Dressings are definitely on our shopping list fairly often. So when Kraft sent me a bottle of their new Zesty Italian Anything Dressing to sample for this review post, I knew it was time to go on the hunt for some great recipes featuring zesty italian dressing! I was excited to see what I could find. Especially with cookout season knocking on our door.

Zesty Italian Dressing #GetZesty

Zesty Italian Dressing from Kraft Adds Zing

So I looked up the definition of zesty (well actually zest) and discovered it means hearty enjoyment or gusto. And I fell in love with the word.  Well, I’ve actually always loved the word because it’s so fun to say! Zesty! I mean, it’s hard not to smile when you say it out loud. And I think it described me well most of the time.

As summer creeps closer, I have a renewed zest for life. I am making a huge change with the decision to work at home and be with my little ones for the next few years. It excites me and invigorates me. It has brought a new zest to my life!

So feeling zesty doesn’t have to just relate to food! It can be all about your approach to life. Of course, I do enjoy a little zing of flavor in my food which is why I depend on Kraft and their Anything Dressings. I have used them in the crockpot, on salads, and as dipping sauces. I love the convenience and the versatility!
