The salad dressings complement Chick-fil-A’s earlier retail launch, which included the famous Barbecue, Polynesian, Sweet & Spicy Sriracha. and Chick-fil-A sauces.
Chick-fil-A also released a variety of dressing recipes to celebrate their launch.

“Bringing versatile flavors to the table, our dressings are perfect for marinating chicken, drizzling tacos or making a pasta salad,” Chick-fil-A chef Christy Cook said in a statement.
Shoppers have also suggested using the dressings as a dipping sauce for vegetables or spreading them on a wrap or sandwich.
“We love seeing the culinary creations that our customers are already making with their favorite Chick-Fil-A dressings, like creamy salsa waffle fries,” said Cook.
“Now we can’t wait to see what they create with our bottled salad dressings in their own kitchen.”
