Reintroducing a Seasonal Favorite

Greetings, flavor adventurers! Harvey Tannenbaum here, and I have some exciting news to share. As the seasons change and the world around us bursts into vibrant color, it's the perfect time to reintroduce a beloved seasonal variety: our Strawberry, Mint, and Basil Botanical Hot Sauce.

Picture this: the sun is shining, the air is warm, and the market stalls are brimming with fresh, juicy strawberries. This is where our journey begins. There's something undeniably enchanting about strawberries in their peak season—succulent, tangy-sweet, and oh-so-flavorful. I couldn't resist capturing their essence in a hot sauce that's as delightful as a summer's day.

But you know me, I love a good flavor twist. Enter the fresh, grassy lift of mint. This herb adds a refreshing note that offsets the berry sweetness perfectly. And then, to balance it all out, I introduced garden-fresh basil. This herb is a flavor powerhouse, with hints of anise, black pepper, and a touch of mint (did you know basil is actually in the mint family?). The result is a botanical blend that's both sweet and savory, bursting with the essence of summer.

Our Strawberry, Mint, and Basil Botanical Hot Sauce is a seasonal delight that won't be around forever, so now's the time to savor it. Whether you're drizzling it over a fresh summer salad, adding a zing to your favorite grilled meats, or stirring it into a refreshing cocktail, this sauce brings a touch of summer magic to every dish.

Here's a quick idea for a delightful summer salad:

Strawberry, Mint, and Basil Summer Salad


  • 2 cups fresh arugula
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons Tannenbaum's Strawberry, Mint, and Basil Botanical Hot Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, combine the arugula, sliced strawberries, crumbled feta, and toasted almonds.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together Tannenbaum's Strawberry, Mint, and Basil Botanical Hot Sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy the burst of summer flavors!

So, fellow flavor enthusiasts, don't miss out on this seasonal treasure. Grab a bottle (or two) of our Strawberry, Mint, and Basil Botanical Hot Sauce and let it add a touch of summer magic to your culinary creations.

Until next time, happy cooking and even happier eating!

Warm regards, Harvey Tannenbaum
