Most of us grew up reaching for that bottle of room temperature dressing in the condiment aisle. We probably didn’t give much thought to the preservatives in those bottles that kept them on the shelf for so long. There is a better, more delicious way to dress your veggies: with fresh tasting, refrigerated Litehouse dressing. Because real food deserves real dressing. Your family will be asking for seconds and your kids will be eating their veggies in record amounts. Cold is where it’s sold!

Why put a room temperature dressing on your delicious, crisp fresh salad? The salad is cold, so why is your salad dressing warm? For dressings as real as the salad you are putting them on - think cold, that’s where it’s sold. Make sure to look in the refrigerated section of your local supermarket for Litehouse Homestyle Ranch and Chunky Bleu Cheese dressings. Litehouse Inc. is a leader in refrigerated salad dressings, veggie dips,sauces and Instantly Fresh™ Herbs.

*On those hot summer nights, a great way to cool down is with a refreshing salad or veggie dish filled with the best seasonal ingredients. To top off your dish, reach for another cool and delicious choice – refrigerated Litehouse dressing. Cold is where it’s sold.

When Bridget ask me if I was interested in doing this project, I was like hmmmm...I have to create a meal using what equates to a salad dressing, okay, I can do this. I was not aware that Litehouse Foods carried other products but once I checked out the product line, I fell in love.   I had the immediate idea of a Sriracha Lime Dressing Marinade for chicken atop a lovely salad of choice for a wonderful summer dish topped with Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing. I was immediately excited.   I began my search...and during my search I actually decided to try my own take on Marinating my Chicken that I thought would be amazing with the Homestyle Ranch Dressing. I think just maybe it might have worked out in my favor.   I used the Litehouse Organic Balsamic Vinaigrette and then added my own take on the lime and Sriracha, this way you can add exactly the amount for you and your family so that it tickles your taste-buds.
You will want to take notes here because this will make an amazing meal for the Dad's and Grad's in your life. It would be perfect for a Father's Day menu or a Graduation Party.

I used about ¾ of the bottle of the vinaigrette with the juice of 2 limes and about 2 tablespoons of Sriracha for the marinate.   We marinaded this for about 1 hour. Now, you could marinate longer and I would suggest over night for a more intense flavor.  It was great, but I could see how this would be more flavorful if you marinated the Meat longer, So that is what I did my second time making this over the weekend as I was trying to perfect the meal before serving it on Father's Day for my husband and son.  It ended up being simply to die for.

Hubby sparked up the grill as that was how we decided to cook the Chicken , but you could have just as easily made it blackened, baked or just about any means you wanted.  Once we grilled the chicken we cut it up and served over our choices of salad.

The first time I made this, My husband loved it. I did not share with him the second time as I planned to serve this for Father's Day and wanted to make sure he was not burned out on it, so I shared with others instead. Now, Hubby loves his Caesar salad so he had his served over Caesar Salad but I substituted the Caesar for the Homestyle Ranch and tossed it just like I would Caesar.  I had mine over a lettuce wedge using the the Homestyle Ranch dressing for my salad.  Which by the way was Delish… and the fact that it uses Greek yogurt added some more protein to my meal as well.

Usually when trying our new recipes I get one of two responses from the hubby, it's a keeper or not , needless to say, this one was a keeper.. It is a very refreshing and easy dish for Father's Day. There is so much you could do with this combination. You could even marinate steak and do a steak salad, you could use the ranch and make an excellent Cucumber Salad as a side dish or use it in Potato Salad as opposed to mayonnaise.

The Chicken was perfect for us though and you really could serve this chicken over many things including a rice dish or use it as a sandwich filling.  I was truly surprised of the varieties that my local stores do carry of the Litehouse brand and the Greek yogurt ranch was also outstanding. when I went shopping for my Litehouse food products I would need, I saw this and wanted to give it a try as well and it did not disappoint. You can also check out the website for Litehouse Foods to find the closest place to pick up a few items.

Hosting a Graduation Party? This would be the perfect meal for a party. Guest can customize the salads themselves if you set it all up Buffet style and let them choose everything from the lettuce variety to the protein they will use. Then have them top it all off with their favorite Litehouse Dressing ( There are so many to choose from that you could pick maybe 3-4 of your favorites and let them choose the one they want) 

We plan to serve this as our Father's Day Feast since the hubby really enjoyed this when I made it the first time. He ended up eating all the leftovers too when I had planned to save the chicken for another meal the first time. I know this is going to be a big hit with him and my son as well on Father's Day.
