Los Alamitos, CA, April 23, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- A key ingredient in Mediterranean cooking for centuries, garlic possesses both medicinal and mythical properties. But the flavor garlic adds to food is unparalleled. That’s why Frieda’s Specialty Produce is pleased to announce the release of its new all-natural mouthwatering garlic product: Frieda’s Garlic Delight™.
Exclusively from Frieda’s, this creamy and light garlic product offers all the delicious and nutritious benefits of pure, fresh garlic in a convenient package.
All-natural and preservative-free, Frieda’s Garlic Delight™ is so much more than a garlic spread or dip. Use Garlic Delight™ as a marinade for meats and fish, swirl it into a sauce for shrimp or pasta, enjoy it as a flavorful dip (perfect with veggies), or as an alternative to mayonnaise in sandwiches and burgers.
“Garlic Delight has such an amazingly smooth and light texture, and it can be used so many different ways,” said Karen Caplan, president of Frieda’s Inc. “One taste, and you’ll be hooked!”
Available in four great varieties – Original, Chipotle, Sun Dried Tomato, and Green Olive, the flavor possibilities are endless. And because it’s made with simple, natural ingredients – canola oil, 100% USA-grown fresh garlic, lemon juice and salt – Frieda’s Garlic Delight™ is a cholesterol-free and low-carb way to spice up any meal. And, of course, Garlic Delight contains no trans fats.
Frieda’s Garlic Delight™ is ready to go straight from each 7-oz. tub. All four delicious flavors (Original, Chipotle, Sun Dried Tomato, and Green Olive) are available in the refrigerated section of your local grocer’s produce department or on Amazon.com.

4 tablespoons Frieda’s Original Flavor Garlic Delight
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
1 teaspoon honey
4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro sprigs
Salt and pepper to taste
4 bone-in chicken breasts
In a mixing bowl combine Frieda’s Garlic Delight™, lime juice, honey, cilantro, salt and pepper.
Arrange chicken breasts in a non-metal dish and pour marinade over, making sure all of the surfaces of the chicken are covered. Cover the chicken and refrigerate for 2 to 6 hours. Arrange chicken breasts on a broiler pan or grill. Grill or broil 4 inches from the heat source for 25 to 30 minutes or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a knife, turning once and brushing more Garlic Delight™, if needed.
