This recipe uses canned Red Gold Tomatoes and all though I love supporting local and using fresh ingredients when I can, these tomatoes are perfect when those products are not available.


Red Gold Tomatoes is a family owned Indiana-based company around since the ’40s focused on growing local in the Midwest where true seasons affect the flavor of tomatoes. The tomatoes are grown on numerous farms in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. All of their tomatoes are picked and canned at the peak of flavor so you get the taste of summertime tomatoes all year long.

The folks over at Red Gold graciously sent me a package that included some cans of tomatoes to promote their current sweepstakes on “How You Aioli”.

Red Gold is introducing a menu of Easy Aioli Recipes. Aioli is a versatile flavored mayonnaise that can be used as a sauce, spread, or even a dip. Red Gold is making it easy for you to create different flavored aiolis by simply combining a half-cup of light mayonnaise with any flavored Red Gold Diced Tomatoes.


This Mexican layered salad is a favorite family recipe I make all the time and instead of a sour cream sauce that I normally make for it, I took a stab at Red Gold’s Green Chili Aioli recipe and it was a hit.

Try it for dinner tonight or head over to the Red Gold website and explore the many recipes they have created using their delicious tomatoes. To enter the sweepstakes head over to Red Gold’s Facebook page.
