A Day of RealSweet® Cooking with Chef & The Fatman

Last month we had the privilege of hosting the dynamic duo of Kevin Jenkins and Erik Holdo, known to the rest of the world as Chef & The Fatman, along with the Redneck Baker Francine Bryson. This culinary combination cooked some of our summer favorites featuring the brands we partner with for our coupon promotion at participating retailers. You can learn more about our RealSweet® Summer Savings program and even enter for weekly giveaways through July 31, 2017.

The warm spring day was filled with lots of fun and some great eats. Check out the recipes and videos for some great additions to your summer meal planning. We know you will have as much fun as we did!


We started the day with a beautiful no-cook salad that features some of our favorite in-season produce. Our RealSweet® Vidalia® Onion Strawberry Spinach Salad showcases DOLE® Baby Spinach and OPA by Litehouse® Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Dressing.


It may sound like an odd combination, but potatoes, onions, corn and tomatoes blend perfectly in this salad that is a great accompaniment to grilled fish or chicken. This Potatoes, Corn and Tomato Salad with Vidalia® onions features NatureSweet® Cherubs® and Blushing Belle Creamer potatoes from The Little Potato Company.


As the day progressed we got a little hungry for something from the grill so we fired up the Big Green Egg for the next few recipes including this summer showcase you will be dying to try. Our Grilled RealSweet® Vidalia® Onion and Peach Salad includes not just one grilled component, but two, not to mention great ingredients from Fresh Express® and Marie’s®.


Next we went for the RealSweet® Vidalia® Steak Salad featuring DOLE® salads, NatureSweet® Cherubs® and Marzetti® Simply Dressed® blue cheese dressing. We have to warn you, this one is delicious, especially with a steak cooked on a Big Green Egg.


Then it was time to cool off a little with a great make-ahead dish that is perfect as a salad or side. The NatureSweet® Cherubs® Caprese Salad with RealSweet® Onions is beautiful and delicious!


After creating several salads, we were ready for our go-to classic All-American RealSweet® Vidalia® Onion Dip accompanied by NatureSweet® Cherubs®. Check it out for the true test of Vidalia® onion sweetness – biting and eating one like an apple!
