As summer rolls around, cooking in a hot kitchen seems less and less appealing, so instead we turn to cool and tasty salads. After a while, the same salads begin to get a bit tedious. However, Blessed & Lucky have just released a range of new premium salad dressings and mayonnaise to shake up your salads this season.
Blessed & Lucky have created a range of mayonnaises and salad dresses, creating deli-gourmet food with an affordable price tag. They celebrate simple, rustic luxury and celebrate bringing the best tasting food to Australian kitchens.
The mayonnaise range includes Garlicky Aioli, Creamy Mayonnaise and Dijonnaise. The mayonnaises are delicious and packed with flavour and are made from free range eggs. Our favourite was definitely the delicious Dijonnaise – filled with rich flavour, it would be a perfect accompaniment to any meal. RRP $4.69 each.
The salad dressings range includes So Versatile Classic Creamy with Dill, Sweet and Zesty Orange Honey Dijon, Simply Stunning Classic Caesar, The Original Vinaigrette with Dijon & Lemon and Simply Stunning Balsamic Drizzle. Just like the mayonnaise, these dressings were bursting with flavour that would add an extra oomph to the humble salad. RRP$3.99 each.
We love this Roast Beetroot, Bean and Feta Salad:
Serves 8 – Preparation: 20 minutes – Cooking time: 30 minutes
- Spray oil (we recommend you use Cold Pressed Virgin Olive Oil)
- 6-8 medium beetroot, trimmed, scrubbed and cut into quarters
- 200g green beans, trimmed and cooked until just tender
- 200g fetta, crumbled
- ½ cup roasted pinenuts toasted
- Blessed & Lucky Orange Honey Dijon
1. Drizzle the beetroot with oil and place onto a lined tray. Bake in the oven no higher than 160°C (to keep it under it’s smoking point) turning once, for 25-30 minutes or until beetroot is just tender. Cool slightly.
2. PLACE the beans on a serving platter, top with the warm beetroot, feta and pinenuts, then drizzle with the dressing.
Recipe Tip: The beetroot is equally good served cold.
The products are filled with wholesome and natural ingredients, however the only downside is the reliance on sunflower seed oil. The products in this range use sunflower seed oil as their base, but some health experts are now recommending we avoid seed oils which are reported to not be good for us. For those on the lookout for seed oils, this is important to note otherwise the products are flavoursome additions to the kitchen.
