Top 5 Barbeque Sauces you need to try this summer!

Chimichurri Sauce

Chimi Sauce | www.canolarecipes.caChimichurri is a green sauce used for grilled meats and goes great with grilled seafood.

It’s originally from Argentina and once you taste it you’ll know why they we are obsessed!

It is made of finely-chopped parsley, minced garlic, canola oil, oregano, and white vinegar.  It can also have red pepper flakes.  Ideally, you are using fresh herbs in this sauce.

We have three for you to try: Chimmichurri Marinade and Sauce or Chimichurri Pork Tenderloin or Chimichurri Beef Kabobs.

Romesca Sauce

Romesca Sauce | www.canolaeatwell.comRomesca Sauce is a nut and red pepper sauce originally from Spain that is typically eaten with fish.

It uses roasted or raw almonds, pine nuts, roasted garlic, canola oil, peppers and stale bread.

Try this with scapes slightly charred on the BBQ or grilled asparagus.  Dip and serve.


Green Sauce

Green SauceKnown in Italy as Salsa Verde, France as Sauce Verte and Mexico as Salsa Verde – we call it Green Sauce.

Essentially it is a cold rustic green sauce made of green herbs like parsley, garlic, vinegar and oil.

Depending on the country of origin you may be adding capers, mayo, tarragon or using tomatillos.


Classic BBQ Sauce

Canola Buckwheat Honey BBQ Sauce | www.canolaeatwell.comA classic BBQ sauce usually has tomato paste or ketchup as the base with spices, herbs, onion, garlic, canola oil and some type of sweetener – sugar, honey or molasses.

The amount of vinegar, sweetness and spices change the style of the BBQ sauce experiment and have fun tasting.

Our Canola Buckwheat Honey BBQ Sauce has a twist using a strong tasting honey – Buckwheat.  If you can’t find buckwheat honey, use a plain honey instead.


Rhubarb BBQ Sauce

Rhubarb BBQ Sauce|www.canolaeatwell.comOnce you have tried Rhubarb BBQ Sauce, you might never go back to a traditional sauce.

This sauce starts with classic BBQ sauce ingredients like tomato sauce, brown sugar and vinegar. Then it transforms into a zesty zingy sauce with the addition of rhubarb, onions, garlic, Chili powder and cayenne pepper.

This sauce is as good on burgers as it is on pulled-pork, meatloaf and vegetarian stuffed peppers. It’s bound to become one of your family favourites.
