ORIENTAL SALAD-DRESSING MIX GETS MIXED REVIEWS

SHARE ORIENTAL SALAD-DRESSING MIX GETS MIXED REVIEWS

Here's another new salad dressing for you to try from Good Seasons. A 1.2-ounce packet of Oriental Sesame salad dressing mix makes 8 fluid ounces and will cost you 89 cents.

Don Russell (married, five children at home, ages 14-4): "This Oriental sesame dressing was full of tangy flavor. We enjoyed it much more than the Good Season's dressing we tried several weeks ago. This dressing actually made me want to reach for more salad. Everyone around our dinner table gave this dressing a resounding `thumbs up!' "Edyth Jensen (married, three children at home): "This is one of the least appetizing dressings, in appearance, that I have ever used. It is, however, a good Oriental-tasting dressing, and the sesame seeds do add flavor also."

Nihla Lake (married, two children at home): "Another good dressing from Good Seasons. We used this one on our green salad when we had an Asian dinner. The sesame seeds added a different, nutlike flavor to oil and vinegar, and we didn't even have problems with them getting under the dentures! We'll probably use this dressing again."

Rich Firmage (married, three children, oldest 8 years old): "This salad dressing was not my favorite. I did not like re-tasting this dressing over and over for two hours after I ate it. I don't believe I'll buy this again."

Bill Allred (single): "This salad dressing is not as good as the Mexican Spice we tried a few weeks ago. I usually think of Oriental dressings as being slightly sweet - you know, sweet and sour - which this mix is definitely not. I suppose you could add some sugar, but why bother? I couldn't taste the sesame either. So let's just not buy this particular Good Seasons variety."

Conclusion: Two of our testers loved this new dressing, but the majority decided they could live without it.
