Not only did they wrangle all of the food bloggers, but they lined up some fantastic sponsors who shipped us ingredients and items for use in creating recipes for the event. So nice!

Here are the #BBQWeek Day Three Dishes...


Adams Extract and Spices
I love that this company started as a husband wanting to create a better product for his wife. That's love! Adams traces its beginnings back to 1888 in Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling Adamur, his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract. In 1905, he and his family relocated to Texas. At that time, most vanilla was phamaceutical and labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” Adams, whose wife yearn for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out, announced that he would produce a better vanilla product. Done!

Still located in Texas the company now manufactures and markets under several Adams Brand banners, including Adams Best®, Adams Extract®, Adams® Seasoning & Spice, Adams Reserve®, Flavor King™, Pantry Basics™, Sear-n-Crust®, ClearVan™, Carniceria®, Cocina del Rey®, Naturals™, and Urban Canner™ along with the Adams Frozen Skillet Desserts and Adams Premium Ice Cream lines.

For this event, they sent me samples of three of their blends - Burgers Fries & More, Sweet & Smokey Seafood Seasoning, and The Great Steak of Texas. I opted to showcase the Burgers Fries and More for this recipe.

Grilled Kale Salad with Ricotta

Quickly grilling kale makes it crispy. Pairing it with creamy ricotta transforms it into my new favorite salad. You could make your favorite vinaigrette, but I just drizzled with some balsamic vinegar. Super easy.

Ingredients serves 4
  • 12 large or 16 small organic kale leaves
  • 1 T olive oil
  • seasoning, as needed (I used Burgers Fries & More from Adams Extract and Spices)
  • 1 C fresh ricotta
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar
  • freshly ground salt, as needed
  • freshly ground pepper, as needed
  • Also needed: brush, grill or grill pan

Procedure
Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush kale leaves with oil; sprinkle with seasoning. Grill kale, flippping once, until crispy and charred at edges, approximately 2 minutes.

Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 2" lengths. Place the leaves in individual serving bowls. Top each serving with 1/4 C ricotta. Sprinkle with more seasoning and salt and pepper, if needed. Drizzle with balsamic and serve immediately.
