Trader Joe's Organic Red Wine & Olive Oil Vinaigrette

If you like pouring olive oil on your salad, then you'll like this dressing. But you could just continue putting the straight olive oil on it, and get basically the same effect. I can see and smell the red wine in the bottle, but once the combination gets on a salad, it's like that half of the formula disappears. I can taste a little bit of it if I'm concentrating, but that's about it. Otherwise, all you have is the taste and texture of olive oil.

Do not like.

Will I buy it again? 

No. I powered through half of the bottle, hoping that I might warm up to it (hey, it's happened before!), but no.


  1. Yeah, I've found most of the olive oil salad dressings are just that. Olive oil.

  2. The olive oil at TJs is so good i don't ever buy vinegrette anymore. The california reserve oil oilve, plus squeeze of lemon or splash of vinegar, a little spoon of dijon, shake in a jar/bottle. Way better and much cheaper than any premade vinegrette (TJs champagne vinegrette is ok in a pinch, pass on the basalmic vinegrette, and just don't even bother with the fat free crud)
