    I recently found out that Kraft has discontinued their red wine vinaigrette dressing. It's one of our favorites and all my 4 year old eats on her salad! Since I have been searching for it for a few months, I have tried some other brands and I can't seem to find one that tastes like it. Does anyone know is there a store brand or another brand that tastes like it?

    Have you tried Wegman's brand, Wish Bone or Ken's? ... I'm not sure if they taste like Kraft's, however, I have found that these brands are quite good and buy them all the time ... :)

    You could make your own as well. It tastes better, has no GMOs or artificial additives and is better for you!! :0

    Tried it, its very tart. Not sure what the correct word is but very strong vinegar taste. Its not as light as the Kraft.

    Thanks

    :thumbsup2 I googled for the ingredients to the Kraft dressing, and found: Water, Soybean Oil, Canola Oil, Red Wine Vinegar, Sugar, Vinegar, Salt, Contains less than 2% of Dried Onions, Onion Juice, Natural Flavor, Xanthan Gum With Potassium Sorbate and Calcium Disodium Edta As Preservatives, Red 40, Apocarotenal (Color), Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Acetylated Monoglycerides.

    Why anyone would rather put that on a salad rather than simply some good red wine vinegar + olive oil is beyond me, but to replicate it I'd try whisking red wine vinegar with canola oil instead of olive, maybe a pinch of onion powder and adding oodles of sugar.
