COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Girard's® Premium Salad Dressings is adding some flare to dinner this summer with the launch of three new flavors – Apple Poppyseed, Creamy Balsamic and Peach Mimosa – and a contemporary new label design for its signature triangle-shaped bottle.

"For today's sophisticated consumer, salad is often becoming the main course at dinner parties and luncheons," said Brandy Wardlow with Marzetti Specialty Brands. "As the salad becomes more sophisticated with the addition of exotic ingredients and the latest culinary trends, the dressing should be just as complex."

The new dressing flavors appeal to all varieties of salad enthusiasts, from the adventurous to the traditionalist.

The Creamy Balsamic salad dressing is a new spin on traditional Balsamic Vinaigrette dressings. The balsamic vinegar base is enhanced with hints of garlic, onion and flavorful spices.

The Apple Poppyseed salad dressing flavor is a delicate and creamy dressing made with ample of amounts of poppyseeds and touches of molasses, onion and apple juice. This eclectic fusion amplifies the dressing's flavor. It is sweet, light and refreshing.

The Peach Mimosa dressing is a decadent combination and white wine vinegar mixed with the delicate flavor of spices and the hint of hint of juicy, full-bodied peaches. The simple combination of flavors make this a supremely wine-friendly salad dressing.

The new flavors of Girard's® Premium Salad Dressings were launched in conjunction with the brand's packaging update. The glass bottle's signature triangle shape remains the same, but the traditional gold label received a facelift to reflect the brand's chic and modern consumer.

The new dressings flavors are currently available in grocers that carry Girard's® Premium Salad Dressings, while bottles with the new label design will appear on grocers' shelves over the next few months.
