Charleston’s Slatherin’ Sauce on shelves at Costco

Slather Brand’s Classic Panzanella Salad by Colleen

Serving Size: 6

Active time: 30 minutes


  •  2 1/2 pounds mixed tomatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
  •  2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  •  3/4 Trader Joe’s Ciabatta Baguettes cut into cubes
  •  10 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  •  2 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  •  4 tablespoons of Slather Brand Food’s Slatherin’ Sauce available at
  •  2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  •  Freshly ground black pepper
  •  1/2 cup packed basil leaves, roughly chopped



Step 1. Place tomatoes in a colander set over a bowl and season with 2 teaspoons kosher salt. Toss to coat. Set aside at room temperature to drain, tossing occasionally, while you toast the bread. Drain for a minimum of 15 minutes.

Step 2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F and adjust rack to center position. In a large bowl, toss bread cubes with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crisp and firm but not browned, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Step 3. Remove colander with tomatoes from bowl with tomato juice. Place colander with tomatoes in the sink. Add sautéed onions, garlic, fresh basil, red wine vinegar/tomato juice blend and a couple spoonfuls of Slather Brand Food’s Slatherin’ Sauce. This blend should thin out the sauce so the bread can absorb it.  Whisking constantly, drizzle in the remaining 1/2 cup olive oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 4. Combine toasted bread, tomatoes, and dressing in a large bowl. Add basil leaves. Toss everything to coat and season with salt and pepper. Let rest for 30 minutes before serving, tossing occasionally until dressing is completely absorbed by the bread.

Step 5. Serve it on arugula with sliced parmesan with a good white wine or rose’!

Slatherin’ Sauce Reviewed by Sauce Authority

This is a guest post from Scott Lindenhurst at Thanks, Scott for sharing your review with our readers and website visitors. Click to read Scott’s review of Slatherin’ Sauce Original Recipe.

Click to read SauceAuthority Review of Slatherin' SauceToo many times when you are looking for that perfect complement to your dinner, you are stuck with the same old hot or BBQ sauce that you have used and tasted a million times. It doesn’t even have to be the same brand, same style, same heat level. It can be a myriad of different sauces but chances are, if you are using the same category of sauce, you’ve had the same taste several times before with just a different label on it.

I host a website – – where I have tasted and posted a ton of hot sauce reviews and BBQ sauce reviews. Many of them are ‘under the radar’ sauces, not just the typical ones you see at every restaurant or grocery store. So I’ve been able to taste many different sauces throughout my reviews. There have been the mild sauces that you can hardly tell anything has been added to them. There have been the hot sauces that you wonder why anyone would even put themselves through the pain of eating them. And there have even been BBQ sauces you’ve tasted that you felt like you have had them time and time again, just switching the labels on the front.

Then I came across Slather Brand sauce – in particular the Original Recipe – and it literally changed my taste buds and my views towards sauces instantly. Like I said, I have had my fair share of sauces and have rated them from low to decently high, but all bets were off the first time I tried this sauce.

Let me explain. This isn’t labeled as a hot sauce or BBQ sauce so it doesn’t fit the cookie-cutter mold of a ‘standard’ sauce. However, who said all sauces had to be the same? This sauce stands out from the rest in a unique fashion. It has a slight bit of kick to it which lends it to fall under the hot sauce umbrella. Yet the sweet taste to it has your taste buds thinking it should be classified as a BBQ sauce.

So what gives? Truthfully, I am not 100 percent sure where to classify it. I tried it initially with a burger and was floored by how good it tasted. And then that led to me pretty much using it with everything. But when people are over at the house and I am using it, I still don’t know what to call it. However, once I try to explain it for a few seconds and then just tell them to try it, they get what I’m saying.

Slather Brand Foods obviously did their research in what makes a great sauce, and the combination they came up with is a tremendous idea. They hit the target on this one, and they took the chance of going outside the norm to make a sauce that you can utilize on pretty much anything you come across.

I have tested a ton of different sauces and few, VERY FEW, have received the accolades that the Original Recipe by Slather Brand Foods has garnered. So regardless of whether you think it should be a hot sauce or a BBQ sauce, one thing is for sure – don’t go another meal without it. Slather up anything you have, it is that good. No reason to be bias, I tell it how it is. That’s the truth, that’s my word. And I bet you follow suit when it comes to Slather.
