Summer Fresh - Gourmet Dips, Hummus and Salads *Twitter Party*Wednesday, May 04, 2011
Summer Fresh Salads are all about fresh, flavourful, healthy and nutritious products for a busy lifestyle. As a leading North American supplier of prepared foods they offers a full range of thousands of product, recipes and private label food products many of which are kosher and organically certified.When I think of summer, I think of fresh foods such as salads and fresh from the garden vegetables. It's a time to enjoy nature and the fruits of our labour. We grow our own vegetables in our backyard and nothing tastes better than your own homegrown tomatoes or cucumbers. A short while ago, I received a package full of Summer Fresh Gourmet Dips, Hummus and Salads. I like to think of it as summer in a box. I had no idea packaged foods could taste so fresh!
One of the freshest tasting products I tried by Summer Fresh is their Spinach Dip. It tastes incredibly creamy and is absolutely delicious. Another favourite is the bruschetta mix. We made some bruschetta the other day for dinner and there wasn't any leftover. It was so tasty. And while I liked their hummus, including their Roasted Garlic Hummus and even their Light version, it didn't quite leave as big of an impression on me as did their Couscous Salad. And I'm not a big fan of couscous! But, I guess, now I am. ;)
Summer Fresh has these fabulous travel meals called Meal to Go! These ready-to-eat meals are vegetarian and an excellent source of fibre. The Couscous Salad, in the red packaging, also comes with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Flat Bread and a Trail Mix. Like I said before, the couscous was so fresh and had a nice blend of herbs and spices in a lemon vinaigrette. I love the lemon! My sister-in-law, who is vegetarian, tried the Taboulah Salad Meal to Go! and really enjoyed it. She wasn't sure if it would be filling enough since the portions are small but when combined, they provided a nice variety and a satisfied tummy.
Also, Summer Fresh products make a perfect addition to other dishes and recipes. Their site has a list of yummy recipes such as their Avocado Hummus Brie Sandwich recipe or their Spicy Artichoke & Asiago Cheese & Vegetable Gratin. There's so much you can do with Summer Fresh dips. It looks like I have more taste-testing to do.
The new Summer Fresh Classic dips and hummus are now available in square bowls that are resealable, recyclable and reusable. They also stack conveniently in your fridge and have a safety tab which indicates that the product hasn't been tampered with. The packaging for the Meal to Go! has a bit too much plastic for my liking, even though the tray could be recycled.
