Summer is very hot this year and I am enjoying fresh salads and salsas so much. One of my favourites is this super simple Lime and avocado salsa it goes perfectly well with the fish or chicken.
1 ripe avocado, diced
1 cucumber finally chopped
1/2 small red onion , finally chopped
2 red chillies, seeded and finally chopped
Handful of coriander leaves
2 tablespoons of lime juice
4 tablespoons of olive oil
Put the avocado in the bowl with cucumber, onion , chilli , coriander,lime juice and olive oil .
Using a sharp knife cut the top of the base off the lime sit lime on the chopping board and run the knife down all sides , removing the skin and pith .Run the knife between the membranes to release the lime segments, then finally chopp them and gently stir them into the salsa be careful not too mash the avocado. Enjoy
If you give it a go let me know what you think 😘
Just before Christmas I received an invitation to another great programme from Tesco Orchard Club this time for Tesco Party food . And it couldn’t be a better timing , as before Christmas we are all busy buying presents , decorations and last but not least of course food . And I love Christmas but last thing I want to do is spending all day in the kitchen cooking , especially when I have family or friends coming over so I thought if this Tesco Party food will taste good it will save me a lot of time and I can more enjoy spending time with my loved ones . So I was very exited when my coupons has arrived and went to my local Tesco next day , and I was blown away with a choice of Party Food , there is to choose from chilled or frozen section and I think everyone will find something suitable for their table from the Posh pigs in blankets , Bourbon Beef Waffles , Mini steak pies , Butterfly Prawn with mango dipping sauce , Thai Chicken Curry Pastries , Oriental Selection , Mini Strawberry Trifles , Lemon Sherbet bites ,Swiss Chocolate truffle profiteroles , Duck spring rolls , Chinese selection , Honey BBQ chicken steamed buns , Indian Selection , Mini Éclairs ,Hog Roast and Apple bites and much more which I cant even remember because its so many :}
Well after a few minutes of thinking I decided to go for Duck spring rolls , Chinese selection , Honey BBQ chicken steamed buns as I thought I have a £4 coupon off my purchase but I want to try few different thing so I bought all three of them which is £2 each but for three I paid £4.50 which is a great value I think .
First one up I decided to try Honey BBQ Chicken steamed buns
10 lovely looking buns , it only took me a 6 minutes steaming from frozen and they are ready to eat , took a bite and I thought the texture of the bun is great is soft and light just melts in my mouth , than the honey bbq chicken comes through and I was little bit disappointed because as much as I love the bun I did not like the flavours of the filling I think is way to sweet all I can taste is Honey , chicken has totally disappeared , but I can see the potential in this product but with less Honey in it , if that will be improved I will definitely try it again .
Next day I have try the Chinese Selection and Duck Spring rolls
The Chinese selection 18 bites – 6 chicken wontons , 6 vegetable spring rolls , 6 prawn toast . Duck Spring rolls of 14
I have to say I really enjoyed every bite from this Selection the Prawn toast were light , crunchy and full of flavours , s well chicken wontons and spring rolls , but mine personal favourite is a Duck spring rolls the hoisin sauce flavour its just excellent there is good amount of duck filling and I was very impressed that all this crispy treats were none greasy , because I was little bit afraid of that but I was nicely surprised .
After my testing sessions I can honestly say that I really love Tesco Party Food and I do want to try more from this range . Would I recommend Tesco Party Food ? I definitely say YES I would .
Last but not least I have try Tesco Party Food thanks to courtesy of Tesco Orchard Club and Tesco and I Thank you very much for that :}
Sour Cream & Chive from Jacobs its definitely flavour I would choose while on my shopping trip . It has very attractive packaging as I would expect from Jacobs , generous bag size of 150g which is great size if you want to share, but doesn’t mean that you couldn’t just eat it all by yourself its totally up to you . After opening a bag the fabulous aroma…
Sour Cream & Chive from Jacobs its definitely flavour I would choose while on my shopping trip . It has very attractive packaging as I would expect from Jacobs , generous bag size of 150g which is great size if you want to share, but doesn’t mean that you couldn’t just eat it all by yourself its totally up to you . After opening a bag the fabulous aroma of chive follow by sour cream escapes makes your mouth watering . First bite its salty than it changes to chive follow by sour cream flavour its great and makes you eat more and more , I would say very addictive :} Good think about Jacobs cracker crisps is that , they are baked non greasy , they will not make you feel bloated or feeling sick like other snacks on the market so probably you could let yourself off a little bit and eat more than usually . They have very nice texture which is super crunchy and after crushing it with your teeth they just melt in the mouth , that’s all positive But I didn’t like the fact when I have opened my first bag about 70% of those lovely crackers were just crashed to very small bits , which personally I am not very impressed with , I had to pick it out few crackers out of the bag which were not destroyed so I can have a proper taste and be able evaluate the product , and now I am not sure is that happen because of transportation or some other reason . But overall I think its a very tasty snack form Jacobs and I would recommend this flavour .
