Mrs. Dash Seasoning Blends & the Dashionista Recipe Challenge {Review & Giveaway}

Although I've never claimed to be any sort of all-star chef, I've been known to whip up a tasty dish or two.

And, while I would like to take full credit for the results, it is nearly always due to my ability to closely follow a recipe... and the knowledge that having a delicious seasoning as the finishing touch can make all the difference.

Which is precisely where Mrs. Dash comes in!

From the first taste of flavor on your favorite meal, Mrs. Dash brings your taste buds to life! With seasoning blends, liquid marinades and seasoning mix varieties to choose from, your kitchen will never be boring again as you add flavor to everything from seafood to salad and meat to mixed vegetables.

I have long been familiar with the original Mrs. Dash but, when a large selection of their seasoning blends arrived, I couldn't wait to start sampling and incorporating them into our meals as well!

What a great way to add just the right amount of seasoning and flavor without adding salt or MSG! Not to mention that by simply using a different Mrs Dash seasoning, a "regular" recipe can be taken to a whole new level!

Instead of traditional mac & cheese, a few more ingredients and Mrs. Dash Italian Medley Seasoning Blend turns into Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Vegetables. Yum!

Or, instead of buying packaged guacamole and not knowing how it might end up tasting, just grab some fresh ingredients and some Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning Blend and quickly turn it into Fiesta Guacamole!

I have yet to make it through trying all of the tasty Mrs. Dash Seasoning Blends, but so far the ones that my family has sampled have been very well-received. It's just so easy to turn up the flavor on everything from appetizers to salads and soups to main dishes in less than 10 seconds with the shake of Mrs. Dash!
