Dressed up

With the changing of a season, you get to rework your wardrobe a bit, so why shouldn't your salad get dressed a little differently too? Teresa's Select Recipes salad dressings - in flavors such as Asiago Pepper Creme, Berry Lavender and Sweet Vidalia Onion - are just the sort of fixings that came to mind. A 12-ounce bottle is about $4 in grocery stores and at mybrands.com.

Shrivel me this

You just can't argue with the sweet appeal of fruit - fresh, dried, pureed. So , welcome the new offerings from Ocean Spray, including dried blueberries, jumbo dried cranberries and dried cherries. Pick up a 4- to 5-ounce package of the chewy snacks for about $4 in grocery stores.

Healthy cocktail

Have you been drinking your vegetables? Well, the idea just got even sweeter, thanks to V8 V-Fusion + Tea. The veggie-plus-fruit juices come in flavors such as Pomegranate Green Tea, Raspberry Green Tea and Pineapple Mango Green Tea. Pick up a 12-ounce bottle at grocery stores.


But sometimes dried fruit options can seem limited, and our fresh fruit options are dictated by the seasons.
