Chef-inspired salsa, hummus
Garden Fresh Gourmet, Ferndale, Mich., introduced a suite of unique salsa and hummus combinations.
“As a brand founded in the kitchen of a Detroit BBQ restaurant, we not only look to deliver on what consumers want, but also leverage our culinary roots and draw inspiration from the local food scene,” says Bill Lange, vice president of marketing, C-Fresh CPG. “We’re seeing chefs and at-home cooks play with unexpected pairings and mash-ups, which inspired us to combine our award-winning salsa flavors with hummus, as well as create a delicious new trio of salsas.”
The three new salsas include the following flavors:
Restaurant Style (Mild, Medium, Hot) – a classic red salsa that combines traditional ingredients like tomatoes, onion and cilantro with varying amounts of jalapeno for three levels of heat; available in both organic and conventional.
Mango – a refreshing mix that combines chunks of sweet mango with red peppers and cilantro.
Salsa Verde Avocado – a hearty green salsa that blends chunks of avocado with a trifecta of peppers, including tomatillo, poblano and jalapeno.
The six new hummus varieties include:
Poblano Corn – roasted poblanos, corn and fresh cilantro make up this Latin-inspired hummus with a mild level of spice.
Chipotle Adobo– chipotle peppers blended with roasted red pepper and topped with corn and black beans for a Southwestern twist.
Roasted Habanero – a simple and straightforward habanero and roasted pepper hummus designed for the heat enthusiast.
Zesty Black Bean – a black bean hummus topped with corn, fire roasted peppers and a dash of chipotle for a subtle smoky note.
Tuscan White Bean – a creamy blend of white bean and basil with a bruschetta-style tomato topping.
Lentil Mocha Mole – coffee and cacao intertwined with lentils and topped with red chili flakes and a hazelnut sprinkle.
