NAKANO “Splash On” Tips:
· Skinny Mac Salad
Macaroni salad without mayonnaise? Yes! Forget the mayo and splurge with the zesty flavor of NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar. Combine cooked elbow macaroni, sliced celery, diced red onion, canned whole kernel corn and diced cucumber. Just before serving, splash generously with NAKANO and toss together. Other tidbits to add: sliced olives, diced ham, diced green or red bell pepper, capers.
· Sautéed Onion Topper
No butter, no fat, but lots of flavor! Just splash, sprinkle and stir. That's all there is to making this delicious onion topping for burgers (meat or veggie); grilled chicken sandwiches; sautéed, baked or grilled fish, steak or chicken; and even hot-cooked veggies. Place a thinly sliced large onion in a large non-stick fry pan. Splash with about 1/4 cup NAKANO seasoned rice vinegar (original, roasted garlic, or red pepper). Sprinkle with garlic powder or chili powder, and fresh-ground pepper or red pepper flakes. Stir over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until onion is soft and cooked, and rice vinegar has evaporated.
· Naked Coleslaw
Traditional coleslaw does not have to have mayonnaise to be delicious. Splash shredded cabbage with NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar, any flavor. Toss in crunchy matchstick carrots, radishes and sliced green onion, and there you have it! A delicious fat-free coleslaw. For variety, add celery, parsley or cilantro, pineapple tidbits, sweet pickles, toasted celery seeds or sesame seeds.
· Summer Salad
Switch up your summer salad with just a Splash of NAKANO. Skip the bottled dressing and make your own; pick the flavor to match your mood.
NAKANO Rice Vinegar products are manufactured from real, whole grain rice and are naturally brewed in the traditional Mizkan manufacturing process that began in Japan more than 200 years ago.
We were sent NAKANO® - Original Seasoned Rice Vinegar and NAKANO® - Roasted Garlic Seasoned Rice Vinegar for review. I kid you not, as I was making sushi one day my package was delivered. Just in time as I was going to season my rice too. I went ahead and used the original flavor, stirred that with a little sugar and salt and drizzled over the rice. The rice was delicious.
I use rice vinegars a lot for marinades and seasoning so I can't wait to use the garlic flavor.
