I enjoy trying new recipes, especially with new products that make them healthier for my family. I was able to review Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar and took the challenge to replace fatty and high-calorie condiments with Nakano. You can easily flavor salads, vegetables, and recipes with the lower calorie Nakano vinegar while providing delicious flavoring at the same time.
You can find a variety of recipes that include Nakano seasoned rice vinegar on their website from Chipotle Chile Steak Salad to Classic Red Potato Salad to Coconut-Lime Marinated Shrimp to Asian Chicken Nuggets.
Pasta and Chicken in Garlic Cream Sauce Recipe
I prepared the Pasta and Chicken in Garlic Cream Sauce Recipe for my family. Below are the ingredients for this recipe, I forgot to include the large onion in the picture and I added fresh oregano from my garden.
Once I browned the chicken with the onions on my stove top, I poured in the Nakano Roasted Garlic Seasoned Rice Vinegar. The smell was amazing, I knew this recipe was going to be a keeper. It reminded me of my Chicken Paprikash & Dumplings recipe, I can’t wait to try the Nakano Rice Vinegar in that recipe the next time I cook it.
The Pasta and Chicken in Garlic Cream Sauce recipe was very simple to make. I wasn’t sure how my family would like it since I have never made my own garlic cream sauce with rice vinegar before. Everyone liked it so much that they had seconds.
I plan to make the Chicken Lettuce Bundles with Sesame Herb Dressing this week. It looks like the perfect dinner for the 95 degree days we have been having this Summer!
I’m bookmarking the California Caviar (Salsa) with black beans, tomatoes, bell pepper, and fresh cilantro for when my tomatoes ripen in my garden. We make all kinds of salsa all Summer long for friends and family with the bounty from our garden!
Orzo Vegetable Salad Recipe
I recently discovered a new family favorite Orzo Vegetable Salad Recipe. This recipe is from the Taste of Home website. I’m always finding great recipes either in the Taste of Home magazine or website, just another reason I am entering to win the Taste of Home Mrs. Holiday Contest. Have you voted for me (Cindy Orley) lately? 😉
This is a wonderful recipe full of delicious flavors of artichoke hearts, olives, spinach, feta cheese, and green onions.
The dressing for this Orzo Vegetable Salad recipe includes olive oil, lemon juice, and rice vinegar. Don’t skimp on any of the dressing ingredients, this recipe deserves the good stuff. I use Nakano Original Seasoned Rice Vinegar for my Orzo Vegetable Salad, it adds the perfect flavor and really melds all of the flavors together.
