Summertime is the perfect time to bring a world of flavour to your dishes. Whether you’re grilling or barbecuing, creating refreshing salads, or making the most of fresh seasonal produce, we have the sauces you need to complete your summer menus.
Summer is all about bringing the heat, whether you’re cooking on a barbecue, or using spicy sauces to add a kick to your summer meats, salads or accompaniments. Hot sauces are incredibly on-trend right now – as are recipes inspired by world flavours – meaning you can get creative in the kitchen and bring a twist to traditional favourites.
Lion Sauces are incredibly versatile and can be used in all kinds of dishes in all kinds of different ways – whether as dressings, dips, glazes or marinades, dips or condiments – make sure you visit our full range of sauces
– and take a look at our recipes to see all the inspiration at hand.
Make sure you bring the fire to your dishes through grilling and through your flavours. No summer menu would be complete without barbecue flavours – whether you’re looking for traditional smokey, tangy flavours of barbecue cooking such as Sticky, Hickory
or American Smokey BBQ Sauce – why not try these Sweet and Spicy American Style Smokey BBQ wings?
Maybe you’re going for an on-trend twist on traditional barbecue dishes, with a global flavour such as Korean BBQ Sauce – which goes great on these Korean Tofu and Vegetable Skewers, which are also perfect for vegan diners.
Even if the British summer weather doesn’t provide the heat, make sure you keep things sizzling by choosing a hot sauce for your dishes. Hot sauces remain popular – diners can’t get enough of spicy flavours. Our Very Hot Chilli Sauce is sure to get tastebuds tingling – but for those less able to handle the heat we have a fantastic Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce – which is more mouth-watering than eye-watering and can be used across a wide variety of recipes as a glaze, dressing or dip.
Remember it’s not just for meat, either – vegan barbecue dishes are all the rage. Whether you’re creating barbecue jackfruit or a grilled tofu dish, remember a huge 62% of Lion Sauces are vegan – so Why not utilise a barbecue sauce alongside our best-selling Premium Vegan Mayo, or one of our creamy vegan dressings, for your plant-based summer dishes? Elsewhere, this Spiced Up Trio of Dips provides a great accompaniment to vegan and meat dishes alike.
There’s also the chance to add some flavour to seafood dishes with Prawn Cocktail Sauce and our soon-to-be vegan 1,000 Island Dressing – which are prefect summer pairings for freshly chilled seafood platters or vegan tofu dishes
Summer is also the perfect time to make fresh seasonal vegetables and salads the star of the show – so make sure you choose the perfect sauce to accompany your side dishes and mains alike. Lion provide a glorious range of dressings, from Garlic and Herb to a classic Caesar
and a tasty, rich Blue Cheese Dressing. Why not prepare a tasty Summer Tuna Caesar Pasta Salad?
We also have handy vegan dip pots available in a range of best-selling flavours - Salsa, Garlic and Herb, Sticky BBQ, Very Hot Chilli and Sweet Chilli – which are not only convenient for al fresco dining but perfect for health-conscious customers looking to choose which dressing or sauce they fancy, while controlling how much they add to their dish.
There are so many ways to bring fresh flavours to summer lunchtime dishes in the sunshine through Lion Sauces – including a Stuffed Cheese & Onion Ranch Jacket Potato or a Quick Cajun and Tomato Prawn Linguini.
Whatever your summer menu holds, make sure you take full advantage of the versatile and varied range of Lion Sauces. Don’t forget to contact us if there’s anything you’d like to discuss.
