I was sent two products from Kasandrinos to review on my blog and the following products are Olivecado & Fig Balsamic Vinegar. I was really excited to try out the Olivecado because to me it sounded like avocado and I just thought of it as a nice Olive Oil to cook with my favorite foods. I love the fact that it's healthy and it's 100% certified organic it has non-GMO! The flavor is just beyond good it has that nutty flavor which I like and it's just a great product that I am so blessed to have it introduced to me in my every day cooking needs.
I decided to make my favorite Chicken Fajitas in my Slow Cooker which requires some type of Olive Oil so I decided to use my new Olivecado and mix it with the chicken to get it nice and coated. Olivecado is also good and known for great skin and hair and is a multi-use skin remedy.
I just poured some of the Olivecado in my slow cooker about 1/3 of it or so. I slowly poured in more if it needed more coating with the chicken. I tossed it around with my fingers to make sure it was evenly coated so it would cook with the peppers too. Then leave it on high for about 3-4 hours checking and stirring frequently.
When everything was nicely coated and this is what it looked like after I had mixed everything together with the Olivecado. It looks delicious and it sure did taste amazing. I was really happy to be introduced to this product and company. Other ideas you can use Olivecado with is drizzling it over some vegetables before cooking them. You can add it to a smoothie or a drink "which by the way I didn't know you could do that or how that would taste, but I am willing to try it to see how it does taste". I would also recommend using it as a salad dressing too or mix it in with some type of condiment that you like.
As for the Fig Balsamic Vinegar. I have not yet tried it I was so concerned and intruded on the Olivecado. We do love salads in our household, so I will be sure to use it on salad of course, and my son just loves balsamic vinegar I just won't mention the fig part. Who knows he may just love it. I personally never had fig before so I would be skeptical by trying it I'm not gonna lie, so I'm hoping there isn't a really strong taste where I can actually enjoy it. If not I know my grand-pop loves to try new things and he likes his balsamic vinegar too. 😊
