A Brown Bag Luncher's Best Friend



My new BFF.
 
I don't usually tout products, but hoo-boy, do I LOVE my new salad dressing shaker by OXO!  I am more of one to use mason jars for everything.  I love me my mason jars.  However, every time I tried to store and use salad dressing in one, it would leak like the dickens - over me, over my desk, over VIP (very important papers).  No matter what type of lid I used, it was a mess.

Enter the OXO salad dressing shaker!  I did my research and read the reviews.  The design made sense to me and it has the added benefit of measuring marks on the vessel.  I whipped up a batch of my new favorite Italian Vinaigrette and .... no spills!

Apparently, the only drawback is that thick dressings - like Ranch - tend to clog up the pouring apparatus.  Since I am presently on a very limited detox diet, Ranch dressing is not on the menu and, ergo, not a problem.  I ended up buying two, since I like to mix it up with my dressings (isn't my life fascinating????)  If anyone is looking for a salad dressing shaker, I would highly recommend it.

  1. I have exactly the same problems with any "oily" dressing in my Mason jars. This thingie sounds like it might be just the solution.

    P.S. Where can I get a daily salad lunch like you have on your desk there?

    1. Mama Pea - It's one of my "what's in the fridge that I can eat?" salads. This one was romaine, spring mix, diced zukes, diced cukes, a little diced onion, diced radish, and cubes of roast beef.

  2. I hate that mess! How does this dispense? Like a steady stream? Asking because I've got a constant ring around the jar of fire cider on my counter. (I take a medicine measure cupful/day) Maybe this would solve that.

    1. HG - That green stem-looking part on the top, swivels back and you pour the dressing over the spout. Then you flip it back and it locks in place. Neato! I have not had one drip off the spout, either.

  4. This should be good.
    I always liked vessels with measuring marks.

  5. Susan,

    Salad looks delish!!!! Thanks for the information on the OXO Salad Dressing Bottle. I love OXO products, the handles are great for people who have arthritis.
