Heinz Salad Cream with Lemon and Black Pepper

Heinz Salad Cream with Lemon and Black Pepper

Heinz is an iconic brand, Heinz Salad Cream is world renowned as the best Salad Cream there is .. and I will agree,

I am one of these weird people who like to put Salad Cream on almost anything (obviously not ice cream!), my favourite is Salad Cream on sausages and people always look at me strangely when I am smothering my sausage bap in Salad Cream.

However ... Salad Cream isn't just for salad, now Heinz have proved this by bringing out a variety with Lemon & Black Pepper.

The new sauce is aimed at your regular favourite salads and cold foods, but also chicken and fish now play a role in the salad creams 'menu'.

The new flavour is the brainchild of Heinz Salad Cream Senior Brand Manager Lynsey Hurst, who came up with the idea whilst making a sandwich on a quiet night in.

Experimenting by stirring a squeeze of lemon and a twist of black pepper into some Heinz Salad Cream, she gave the sauce a tangy freshness she really liked.

Excited by her creation, the next day she brought it to the office for everyone to try. Less than a year later Lynsey is bringing the unique new taste direct from her kitchen to supermarket shelves everywhere for fans to enjoy.

Heinz Salad Cream Lemon and Black Pepper blends the freshness of lemon and the bite of black pepper with the great taste of this British favourite, adding a delicious and flavoursome twist.
Heinz Salad Cream with Lemon and Black Pepper goes especially well with chicken or fish.

Mix with tuna to perk up sandwiches, great served with salmon fillets or add to chicken quesadillas for a touch of citrusy freshness.

Apparently I am not the only person to add Heinz Salad Cream to different foods, . During World War II, when many ingredients were in short supply & Heinz Tomato Ketchup was taken off the shelves, the nation reached for Heinz Salad Cream to add a tasty zing to the often bland ration food.

There are loads of recipes on the Heinz website to try out their new Salad Cream with Lemon and Black Pepper, here is an example to tempt you:
