Sunbutter vs. Peanut Butter, what's the difference?
In addition to being peanut allergen-safe, Sunbutter has 4x the mineral content, and a higher percentage of healthy fats essential to a balanced diet. Meaning our Sunbutter Sandwhich is safer, and healthier to enjoy.

This Cilantro Honey Vinaigrette was by far our most requested #recipe @latinschoolofchicago this year. It makes a great salad dressing but can also be used as a sauce - we love it on grilled meats, fish or veggies! 🥗🍗🥩🥦⁣

Don’t have all these ingredients? No problem! Follow the simple rule of 3 parts Oil to 1 Part Acid. Here’s a quick guide to vinaigrette basics:⁣

- 1 T Acid: Vinegars, lemon or lime juice⁣
- 3 T Oil - We prefer mostly neutral oils like canola or sunflower for our vinaigrettes. ⁣
- 1/2-1 tsp Emulsifier - Mustard & Honey are our favorites. ⁣
- Pinch salt and pepper to taste. ⁣
- Incorporate minced shallot, garlic, chives or herbs to your desired flavor profile. ⁣

HandCut Foods is committed to supporting our communities through healthy, responsibly sourced and scratch prepared meals. Since our normal business of cooking for schools is on hold, we found a way to give back to our first responder community.

You can donate a meal to those continuing to work to keep us safe. It's a small way to show gratitude and say "thank you"! Visit www.handcutfoods.com/athome or click on the "shop now" link on our FB homepage to purchase a meal for donation.
