Can I please tell you about my current obsession with avocado products? I think you most likely have figured me out by now. If I don’t believe in something, it won’t show up on this blog. Well guys, I need to share these products with you because to be honest, I’m in love.
Like IN LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Chosen Foods sent me a whole box of stuff to try a few months ago. From avocado spray, oils and mayo to seeds and grains, these folks have a myriad of goodness to try in your kitchen.
The company was founded by a Naturopathic Doctor whose vision centered around the idea that food should nourish and sustain our bodies, our lives and our communities.
Wait til’ you try these oils in dressings, sauces, drizzles and as a substitute for any cooking oil. It’s 100% avolicious.
For this recipe, I wanted to create a light citrusy vinaigrette with the addition of cilantro and honey. The fall flavours intertwined with the creaminess of fresh goat cheese in this salad was nothing short of awesome.
Ya, I know, I use a lot of goat and feta cheese in my recipes. Chalk it up to the fact that I have a THING for sprinkling that touch of white over all the green. Pretty right?
I’m also really excited that Chosen Foods has other products that are super cool like coconut spray, sesame oil and chia bites. Best part? Their products are available in both Canada and the USA!
BIG HUGE YAY!
