Great Recipe Testimonial With Creole Trinity Salsa…

We had to share this amazing Recipe Testimonial from Chef Bryant Fuselier

I had to cook a Jambalaya for some clients today & Ok, against my better judgement, I will share the secret to my base in addition to all of my seasonings. Yes, I was brought up using Rotel, but, I do not prefer the vinegar taste in my Jambalaya. So, this right here is the tomato flavor in my Jambalaya, not too strong, I love sauce picante, tomato gravy etc., but I don’t like a strong tomato taste. So, there you have it, don’t look for any more secrets anytime soon, lol. Besides, my niece received my shipment & realized I had to be using this often. Please give me some feedback, I’m sticking to this stuff. I use I jar per 5 cups of rice. Remember, this is in addition to my other seasoning, not just by itself.

Breaux Bridge Entrepreneur Introduces Cajun Salsas – Lisa Leblanc-Berry – myNewOrleans.com

NB_Salsa2-887b668cMichelle Vallot, a career lawyer-turned-entrepreneur who resides in Breaux Bridge, has rolled out new salsas representative of southwest Louisiana’s unique culture. Founder and CEO of Zydeco Foods and creator of the Original Sweet Potato Bar, she recently introduced all-natural, gluten-free Zydeco Sweet Potato Salsa (sweet and fiery), Zydeco Creole Trinity Salsa (a hot and spicy blend) and Zydeco Red Bean Salsa. “We took what was uniquely Louisiana and great tasting to re-create the concept of salsa, but without preservatives or chemicals. And no one was doing salsa in Louisiana!” she says. Zydeco Bars and Salsas can be found in all locations of Rouses and many independent retail grocers, in addition to some locations of Bloomingdale’s stores in Florida and New York. “The plan in 2014 is to expand to all their retail locations,” Vallot notes. “Texas HEB stores are slated for distribution in early 2014.” The Krewe of Boo purchased 7,000 Zydeco Fruit and Pecan Bars for Halloween throws in October last year, and Brian Kern (son of Krewe of Boo founder Blaine Kern) says that he is instituting a revolutionary twist that may, in time, change all of Carnival. Instead of imported plastic beads, Kern says he plans to throw nothing but Louisiana-made products each year, such as Vallot’s health bars, and will extend this new tradition to major Carnival krewes in New Orleans. “Our plan is to partner with the numerous NOLA Mardi Gras krewes for the 2014 parades,” Vallot said.

As a registered dietitian, I’m always on the lookout for new products that make it easy to eat (and drink) healthfully, plus add a bit of variety, so here are eight of my latest finds.

All of these items are available locally in the New Orleans area, and each of the product websites has a locator feature to find stores in your area that carry it. If you don’t see an item in your local grocery store, you can always ask the store manager to stock it.

Zydeco Salsa.  I really can’t decide which one I like best. The Sweet Potato Salsa (just 15 calories per two-tablespoon serving, with 10 percent daily value for vitamin A) and the Red Bean Salsa (also just 15 calories, and loaded with tomatoes and red beans) are equally delicious. Plus they’re a South Louisiana company, based out of Lafayette.
