Late-Summer Recipes With Nature’s Intent® Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
As we look toward the late summer months, I am so excited to share with you two delicious recipes created in partnership with Nature’s Intent® Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, which is raw, unfiltered and made with the mother. These recipes transition the fun, fruitiness of summer into the sophisticated, reflective feeling of fall.
You know how much I love cooking with fermented foods such as kimchi and miso, but I find that apple cider vinegar is one of my favorites! In my experience as a health and wellness writer, I love incorporating ACV into my recipes because of all the healthy bacteria within the mother (the web-like strand of proteins).
Also, Nature’s Intent Organic Apple Cider Vinegar brightens and awakens the taste of my favorite recipes (including the two I’m about to share with you!). It has a clean, crisp flavor that enhances other ingredients with a subtle, sweet-and-sour twist.
Miso Kale Caesar Salad
I’ve changed up your typical Caesar and made it my own. Inspired by my childhood in So Cal with my Japanese mom, flavors of miso, sesame and toasted nori are balanced with the bright acidity of Nature’s Intent Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, making it a perfect complement to the heartiness of the kale, raw white corn and avocado.
