T. Marzetti Company Announces New Simply Dressed® & Light Refrigerated Salad Dressings For Those Seeking A Well-balanced Lifestyle

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Striving to make healthy lifestyle changes is something most Americans have done at some point. According to a recent survey, 64 percent of American women will make a resolution to eat healthier. However, making healthy choices can sometimes be synonymous with sacrificing flavor, and survey respondents said taste is the most important characteristic of the food they purchase. [i] T. Marzetti Company's successful line of Marzetti ® Simply Dressed ® refrigerated salad dressings offer flavorful solutions to living a well-balanced lifestyle. They are made with a minimal number of all-natural, simple ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, canola oil and sea salt, so you can enjoy foods you love without sacrificing great taste.

T. Marzetti Company is expanding their line of Simply Dressed refrigerated salad dressings by introducing new Marzetti ® Simply Dressed ® & Light varieties, which are great options for maintaining wellness goals. Containing no preservatives, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, MSG or artificial flavors, Simply Dressed and Simply Dressed & Light are fresh, flavorful additions to any salad or recipe, which is especially good news for the 75 percent of survey respondents who said they pay close attention to the ingredients in the foods they eat.

"With wellness being a major priority for many Americans, we're excited to provide a delicious way to make well-balanced choices," said Carla Laylin, group marketing manager for Marzetti Produce Dressings and Toppings. "All of our popular Simply Dressed refrigerated salad dressings are made from all-natural ingredients and several flavors of the new Simply Dressed & Light varieties are made with yogurt. They taste great and have the richness of a regular dressing."

Simply Dressed & Light offers fewer calories and fat than regular dressings and includes five delicious varieties – Light Blue Cheese, Light Ranch, Light Caesar, Light Celery Seed Slaw and Light Raspberry Acai. Yogurt is the key ingredient in the creamy Lights, and Light Raspberry Acai blends two popular berry flavors into a fat free delight.

In addition, Simply Dressed Thousand Island is the newest flavor in the original line of all-natural dressings, providing the perfect addition to a wedge salad or a flavorful spread on a Reuben sandwich. Additional Simply Dressed varieties include deliciously unique flavors such as Pomegranate, Strawberry Poppyseed, Champagne, Greek Feta and Ginger Sesame, along with tried-and-true favorites such as Blue Cheese, Ranch, Caesar, Coleslaw, and Balsamic.

Marzetti Simply Dressed and Marzetti Simply Dressed & Light are available in the refrigerated section of grocers' produce departments for a suggested retail price of $3.79 - $4.49 per 12-ounce bottle (prices may vary by store). For more recipe ideas and additional product information, visit
