Sandridge Review and Giveaway

I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to food. I'm always up for trying foods that I've never tasted before, and finding new favorites. I really love experimenting with old favorite foods and putting a different spin or take on them. It's fun to spice up food.



Sandridge Food Corporations uses the highest-quality ingredients to produce traditional favorites, custom recipes and on-trend flavors. They maximize taste technology to deliver freshness bringing you chef-inspired refrigerated soups, salads, sides, sauces and specialty dishes that couldn't get any fresher.

Their brand promise is to provide unrivaled fresh food – reliable, great tasting, handmade quality that enhances your reputation.

Sandridge offers a delicious assortment of foods including pasta salads, soups, potato salad, macaroni salad, chili's, desserts, hot foods, dips and spreads, and more. Let Sandridge cater your next party by offering a delicious spread of foods that your guests will enjoy.

I was sent quite an assortment of Sandridge products for review.
I received:
Pacific Coast Slaw

Fresh angel hair cabbage tossed with protein-packed almonds, julienne carrots and green onions dressed in a light apple cider vinaigrette.

Mediterranean Couscous

Couscous tossed with fresh ripe tomatoes, zucchini, green bell peppers, red onions, parsley and sea salt in a light citrus and lemon oil vinaigrette.


Chili Lime Corn Salad

Fire-roasted sweet corn, celery, green and red peppers, fiber-rich beans and sea salt, lightly dressed in a chili-lime vinaigrette.


Curried Chickpea Couscous

Fiber-rich garbanzo beans, Indian spices, Israeli couscous, sweet golden raisins and sea salt, lightly dressed in curry vinaigrette.


4 Bean and Barley Salad

Barley, orzo, protein-packed edamame, mixed beans, sweet corn, sea salt and spices lightly dressed in an agave and olive oil vinaigrette.


I haven't tried everything yet but I did try the Mediterranean couscous and 4 bean and barley salad. Two of my favorite food are orzo and edamame, so I was excited to try the bean salad. I liked that the salad had a lot of flavor and taste but was not overdone on the spices. I could lightly taste the sea salt and various spices but they were very subtle. The salad was very fresh and would be perfect to bring to a picnic and serve. It could also make for a nice lunch or snack. The corn and mixed beans had a nice flavor and the edamame had a nice crunchy texture which I enjoyed. I really loved how all of the ingredients came together well and had an awesome 3-dimensional flavor. The dressing was delicious and added a great finishing touch to a delicious and healthy side dish.

The Mediterranean couscous is extremely healthy as well and has key nutritional ingredients in it. It was a little taste of Morocco! The couscous was soft and very fresh and combined nicely with the tomatoes, peppers, and onions. All of the flavors paired together extremely well but still stood out enough for you to find the balance between them. Peppers and onions are a classic combination and go together so well. The lemon and citrus vinaigrette was delicious and extremely fresh and flavorful. I liked how the citrus and lime flavors played off of each other.

I hope to be able to try the other side dishes soon, I'm sure they will be just as delicious as what I've already enjoyed. :)
