We love this recipe because it works on salads, chilled or room temperature vegetables and/or grains (farro, barley, etc), and even roasted vegetables (try it on sweet potatoes!).
Our favorite way to use this dressing is with mixed greens, diced tart apples, thinly sliced raw fennel, crumbled chevre, and toasted pecans.
Grapefruit and vodka combine to make a cocktail known as the Greyhound. But with the addition of Spiker’s Chile Lime Shrub, you get a drink we call The Chihuahua. It’s fiery, tangy, and filled with Mexican energy and a bit of bite.
Looking for a new way to dress up a classic fish taco? Try this zippy slaw which marries Spiker’s Chile Lime shrub with a creamy hummus-mayo dressing. The colors are bright and beautiful, the textures are creamy and crunchy. The perfect combination!
Spiker’s Chile Lime shrub adds depth and zing to this classic dipping sauce which goes great with spring rolls, grilled shrimp, on a salad, or over cold noodles! For subtle variations, include a splash of Spiker’s Ginger Bite or Pineapple Basil shrub to the mix.
A spicy, rich marinade of coconut milk, Ginger Bite shrub, Asian fish sauce and fresh herbs creates a tasty batch for fresh shrimp. Great as an appetizer or entree. Serve with jasmine rice and steamed or stir-fried broccoli. (Note: This recipe was inspired by a recipe from The New York Times, but we modified some of the steps to streamline the process and incorporate more shrub flavor into the shrimp.)
Sometimes the simplest drinks are the most elegant. Case in point: a nicely balanced blend of Prosecco, Spiker’s Shrub (any flavor), and a twist of lemon or lime. Be sure to choose a dry (brut) Prosecco, because the shrub will add just enough sweetness without taking away the personality of the bubbly.
This is a bubbly riff on the classic Cosmopolitan. Pear brandy is preferred but you can substitute apricot or peach.
Lavender and steak? Flowers and beef? Yep…We’re not joking. The floral, fresh pop provided by lavender provides a beautiful herbaceous balance to a marinade of fresh rosemary, garlic, and black peppercorns. Collectively, it naps a ribeye steak with a wash of flavors reminiscent of open meadows and campfires. Continue reading Lavender Rosemary Rib-eye Steak
