We’ve been fans of Tessemae’s for years! In our TX Snap Kitchen stores, we’ve stocked their full-sized condiments, dressing packets, and their delicious salad mixes. But we decided to take our love affair up a notch and add a Snap-prepared menu item featuring their delectable avocado ranch dressing.
Today, we’re sharing a bit about why we love Tessemae’s, and a sneak peek into the dish we collaborated on (Psssst: there’s another coming your way in May!).
Why We Love Tessemae’s
Well, let’s start with the obvious. They make really delicious, really nourishing products. From their decision to go Certified Organic to their choice of high-oleic sunflower oil (hooray for a better fatty acid profile), there’s integrity in their ingredients and delicious flavor in the final product.
But we also love their origin story, and the work they do through their own Tessemae’s Foundation. Their motto of ‘simplify food, amplify life’ really freaking resonates with us. Sound like anyone you know? Our whole goal at Snap is to take cooking off your plate so that you can focus on more important things (like living your life, ya know?).
But I’ll let them tell their own story below:
“As the mother of three athletic boys, Tesse had to figure out a way to get them to eat their veggies while staying healthy. Because serving a dressing full of artificial ingredients was not an option, she created and perfected her own all-natural recipe. When her oldest son, Greg, realized how great it was, he said, “Mom, let’s go into business together and make this for the world!” As Tessemae’s All Natural grows its product line around the globe, the commitment to healthy eating and healthy living remains the core of the company’s mission.”
If you want to watch a short video with more on their inspiring story (try not to get goosebumps, I dare you), head here. Minor teaser – Greg walked into Whole Foods with a Tupperware container of his mom’s dressing and some lettuce and impressed the buyer so much that their products made it into Whole Foods Market stores. Packaging, shmackaging.
About Our Collab
Ok, we won’t bury the lead! The dish we’re cooking up with Tessemae’s (that launches in just a few days, btw!) is our Avocado Ranch Rotisserie Chicken. A perfectly cooked rotisserie chicken leg quarter, marinated in herbs and ghee, then paired with roasted veggies and Tessemae’s Avocado Ranch dressing. And we heard you loud and clear—this dish is 10000% keto-friendly (only 8g of total carbs) and filled with healthy fats to boot. Plus, our chicken leg is bone-in, skin-on, so it’s packed with flavor. And did we mention it’s also Whole30 Approved and paleo? A jack of all trades if we ever saw one!
If you’re like us and you can’t wait to get your paws on this exclusive collab, set your alarms! Our Avocado Ranch Rotisserie chicken will be available starting on Monday, April 5th to add to your next box (Friday, April 9th if you’re shopping in-store).
We can’t wait to hear what you think!
