Heinz Salad Cream with Cucumber and Dill

salad_cream_cucumber_dill[1]Last year, I was asked to review Heinz Salad Cream’s first flavoured variety, Lemon and Black Pepper. I loved it and it has been added to our shopping list on a number of occassions since. It honestly comes as no surprise to me that demand for the product was so high it is no longer sold as a limited edition flavour, but as a permanent product. So when I was contacted again a couple of weeks ago to review Heinz Salad Cream with Cucumber and Dill I was eager to give it a try.

A bottle arrived through my letter box just before lunch so I tried it first in a ham and salad sandwich. It transformed the sandwich! Dill has a very distinct and strong flavour which in this case became the predominant taste of the sandwich. It was good, but I decided would not suit me every day. I add the lemon and black pepper flavour to almost anything and it adds a subtle zing which accompanies the food. The new flavour, on the other hand, took control of the sandwich and the dill overpowered the ham and salad leaves.

I liked it enough though to add a good dollop of it to my sausages the next day and it worked superbly. It is also nice mixed with some tuna in a sandwich but comes into its own with burgers. I’m looking forward to trying it with a steak. It will be the perfect barbeque accompaniement this summer. It needs to accompany a strong meat or fish, otherwise it will overpower the flavour of your food, but when you get it right it is delicious.

So the verdict? Not as versatile as Heinz Salad Cream with Lemon and Black Pepper but delicious with strong meats and a must for barbeques this summer. Give it a try. Heinz Salad Cream with Cucumber and Dill is available to buy in supermarkets now with an RRP of #1.15.
