I am pleased to announce that I have been contacted by a company called Mizkan to do a review of their Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar products. I have also been authorized to offer an awesome giveaway (I’ll tell you about it in a bit!) to all my wonderful followers and readers. I have been graciously provided with a free full-size bottle of Nakano (original flavor) Seasoned Rice Vinegar, a recipe/coupon booklet that contains some awesome recipes and a $1 coupon good on my next purchase of  any flavor Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar, and a $50 gift card!

Here is a picture of the bottle of Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar I received for my review.


Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegars are naturally brewed, fat and gluten free, contain no preservatives and have a sweet, light flavor that dresses up any dish. Simply splash it on almost everything from salads to pasta to meat and vegetables. Enjoy the unique variety of distinctive flavors only from Nakano. There are 7 flavors to choose from: Seasoned, Roasted Garlic, Basil & Oregano, Red Pepper, Pesto, Balsamic Blend and Italian Herb.


While browsing through the recipe/coupon booklet, a recipe just kind of jumped out at me as the one I should try. I knew my family was going to enjoy the Tangy Pan-Fried Potatoes recipe. You simply must try this wonderful side that will add spice and flavor to any meal you cook for your family. Adding Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar gave this dish a tangy, spicy flavor my family really enjoyed. Let me just say, there were no left-overs. Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar turns ordinary pan-fried potatoes into an extraordinary taste delight. Take a look at my photo of these Tangy Pan-Fried Potatoes made with Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar and tell me your mouth doesn’t start to water!

I also enjoyed mixing the Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar with a small amount of olive oil for drizzling over garden salad or cut-up fresh tomatoes. If you are trying to cut calories you could omit the oil and just splash on the Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar in the flavor of your choice. A healthier alternative to bottled dressings which can contain sugar and preservatives. It makes a great addition to any weight loss diet plan. Any one of these unique flavors of rice vinegar is also perfect for marinating your favorite meat for grilling, broiling or baking. Because they contain 50% less sodium than their competition, they are an excellent seasoning choice for those family members (like my hubby) who may need to restrict their sodium usage due to high blood pressure or other health concerns. I highly recommend these delicious, flavorful Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegars to all of you!
