During your regular stop at your Jewel Osco, salad dressing may be on your grocery list. We tend to grab our favorite dressing and go on our way. However, what if we told you that there is a type of salad dressing that tastes good, contains protein and has fewer calories? If that catches your attention, we suggest you try out Litehouse’s OPA Greek Yogurt Salad Dressings. These delicious dressings will definitely add a little kick to your salads, dips and other signature dishes.

What makes OPA dressings so unique?

  • Great taste

OPA dressings come in various delicious flavors that can be used in many dishes. Some of their fabulous flavors include Feta Dill Dressing, Strawberry Poppyseed, Avocado Cilantro, and Tzatziki Ranch

  • More protein

Since the dressings have a Greek yogurt base, the protein that we gained will help us stay fuller longer. Plus, protein builds muscles, repairs tissue damage, and provides growth for our hair and nails.

  • Less fat

Rather than using extra oils and fattening fillers, OPA dressing relies on the Greek yogurt as its main fat source. This reduces the amount fat and calories in our diet!

  • No artificial preservatives

As customers, it is always good to know what we are actually putting into our bodies. Litehouse has taken the extra effort to provide dressings that contain real ingredients without the extra preservatives.

Rehydrate Your Herbs

Another convenient product Litehouse has available is freeze-dried herb. These instant herbs provide the fresh taste without the peeling and pressing. The herbs immediately rehydrate and can be used to make the perfect foundation for meats, soups, salads, and stews. You can find these herbs in your local Jewel Osco produce section.

Add Pizzazz to Your Pizza
