    The Healthy and Yummy Salad Dressings You Need for Summer Salads

    What is the oil I consider as the best oil in the market? I will say avocado oil. Although I love coconut oil and olive oil as well, they have somehow more limited than avocado oil. Coconut oil usually has very strong coconut flavor, it good for certain things, but not for everything. How about olive oil? I love using olive oil for low-heat cooking, but for high-heat, I guess avocado oil is my first healthy choice. But actually no matter high-heat or low-heat, even for salad dressing, avocado oil is still one of the healthiest oil used for cooking.

    As summer is really here, I want to introduce you some healthier salad dressing alternatives than the classic ones in the market. They are Vegan Ranch Dressing, Caesar Dressing and Balsamic Vinegar from Primal Kitchen.

PRIMAL KITCHEN® Ranch Dressing is made with avocado oil, organic eggs and without dairy, sugar*, canola, soy or artificial ingredients for a spiffed-up classic ranch dressing you and your family will love on everything from summer salads to buffalo chicken wings.

    My Kamado Joe’s New Best Friend – Primal Kitchen’s Hawaiian Style BBQ Sauce

    When I complained to my husband Ryan about the fact that we can’t go out to eat, I was truly meaning it. Of course I miss the restaurant foods, especially BBQ! How can we make charcoal grilled steak, pulled pork, and lamb chops like the ones we eat at a professional BBQ place? No way. But! I was wrong. Because Ryan got a Kamado Joe’s! Yes, the big red baby. It is pretty pricy, but he loves it, and we use it everyday. So if you ask me is Kamado Joe’s worthy of the price? I will say yes for sure. From then on, I don’t miss BBQ restaurant at all. We tried steaks, ribs, whole duck… all come out amazing! And how about a pulled pork sandwich? I think we need a great BBQ sauce.

    Primal Kitchen gives us a perfect solution when we find they have a Hawaiian BBQ Style Sauce, making our smoky pulled pork a nice tropical flavor, so yummy.

    But what if you don’t have a Kamado Joe’s or if you don’t like pulled pork? Hawaiian BBQ Sauce is still a great sauce that you can use for many other things. Let’s take a closer look about this fantastic sauce.
