Today, Mrs. Dash® Seasoning Blends are available in 13 different varieties that add flavor to foods - everything from seafood to salad and meat to mixed vegetables.The salt-free flavor is also available in Mrs. Dash® 10-Minute Marinades in 6 varieties: Zesty Garlic Herb, Lemon Herb Peppercorn, Mesquite Grille, Southwestern Chipotle, Spicy Teriyaki and Garlic Lime.
I was fortunate to receive some samples of Mrs. Dash Seasoning Blends, and I recently made two dishes.
The first thing I made was a Taco Pizza. The recipe I used calls for taco seasoning, but since I know how much sodium is in taco seasoning, I decided to use the Fiesta Lime seasoning.The pizza turned out really good, and I think it turned out much better than if I had used regular taco seasoning. I really liked the subtle lime flavor--it really gave the pizza some character.
I also made Cheddar Shortbread, a recipe found on the Mrs. Dash website, using the Tomato, Basil, Garlic Seasoning Blend. The shortbread turned out great. It was very tasty, and my boys loved them too!
Mrs. Dash Seasoning Blends provided a flavorful boost to the pizza and shortbread, and I can't wait to make more dishes with the seasonings!
