What we liked:
Comments from our taste panel included "love the creamy texture", "doesn't taste artificial", "love that it doesn't taste very acidic because in other vinaigrettes, if there's too much vinegar, it overwhelms the other flavors", "looks like a gourmet product", and "like that it adds a light flavor to my salad; would definitely buy this again".
(from company website) "Girard's is a premium quality line of salad dressings created in San Francisco by Chef Pierre Girard. He started with the Original French dressing, and gradually added varieties. Since then, Girard’s has come to offer a whole line of flavors as distinctive as its triangular bottles. Look for Girard's in the specialty dressing section of your local grocery store."
