Guess who’s having their second annual “Toss in the Flavor” promotion? Redpack Tomatoes, that’s who!
This year’s “Toss in the Flavor” Facebook promotion runs from May 13 to June 10. Every week, Redpack Tomatoes will share salad recipes that uses Redpack Petite Diced and Diced Tomatoes paired with seasonal produce. As part of their promo, they’re giving away a Grand Prize Picnic Basket worth $400 that “includes all the tools you need to spin, chop, toss, dress, and mix your favorite Redpack summer salad!”
As for me, I received a kit from Redpack containing two 28 oz. cans of Redpack Petite Diced Tomatoes, one 28 oz. can of Redpack Diced Tomatoes, a Redpack Wine Tote, plus six light and easy salad recipes.
This is the Artichoke & Tomato Dip.

Now here’s the recipe for the Sassy Chicken Salad. (reprinted in its entirety with permission from this site)
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can Redpack® Petite Diced Tomatoes, drained
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
- 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
- 1 cup sliced celery
- 1 cup grapes, halved
- 1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans
- In a medium bowl, combine petite diced tomatoes, green chilies, mayonnaise and honey. Stir in chicken, celery, grapes and pecans.
- Cover and chill. May be served in hollowed out melons, avocados or papayas. Also makes a great sandwich when served on a croissant.
This is my version of the Sassy Chicken Salad.
As you can see, I overdid the tomatoes. There were leftovers from the first can, so I added it to this salad. Why not? You can never have enough tomatoes. Plus, I didn’t add celery (not a big fan) and I couldn’t find canned diced green chilies in the grocery store. I ended up using two tiny green chilies we have here at home, which in retrospect might not have been enough.
Anyway, as a first-time user of canned tomatoes (we always buy fresh), I was surprised that I enjoyed this product for its convenience – already peeled and diced, perfect when you’re in a rush. I can’t wait to use the Redpack Diced Tomatoes for the other salad recipes that they sent me. Now I’ve seen the endless possibilities of using Redpack Tomatoes.
