Okay mayonnaise lovers, when I say the word "aioli" there is a good chance you already know what I'm talking about. But I'm guessing a few of you, rather you are a mayo fan or not, have no idea what aioli is. Some of you might have heard it on some of your favorite cooking shows, or maybe on the menu at a favorite restaurant. Heck, maybe if you've even had it, and know you love the flavor, but have no idea how to make it at home or use it in your favorite recipes. Now Red Gold Tomatoes wants to change all of that!
For those of you who don't know what aioli is, I bet a few of you have had it and not even realized it! Have you had a great sandwich with a flavorful mayo-like spread on top, or maybe a crab cake with a creamy dipping sauce? Well, that is aioli!!
Aioli is a wonderful, flavorful mayo-like spread that can be smeared on a sandwich, used as a dip or as a topping on fish tacos. It is so versatile and delicious, that regardless of how it s used, you will always be adding more depth of flavor!
The great folks at Red Gold are hoping to introduce more home cooks to aioli spreads using tomatoes for sandwiches, dips, toppings and other recipes. As part of this fun summer cooking idea, Red Gold is hosting a Facebook campaign, "How do you Aioli?" from May 7-27 where you can win aprons or even a $250 prize pack that includes a Cuisinart Panini Grill and other great prizes. Simply visit their Facebook page and choose which aioli you are most like!
The fine folks at Red Gold were kind enough to send me a sample pack of their tomatoes, including Petite Diced with Garlic and Olive Oil, Lime and Cilantro, and Green Chilies, plus some recipes to try. The minute I saw this recipe I knew it was going to be the first I wanted to treat my family to. We love at home pizza parties, and I'm always looking for new recipes to jazz up our routine! This makes a fantastic appetizer, light lunch or even simple summer supper. I served it with a simple salad on the side and it made a fun, easy and yummy meal we all loved!
Be sure to check out Red Gold online, on Facebook and Twitter too. Drop by and enter the "How do you Aioli" contest today! And remember to try some new #EasyAioli with #RedGoldRecipes!
