The following recipes use ingredients from Made in Oklahoma Coalition food manufactures with products produced by Griffin’s, Andrew Honey Bees, Scissortail Farms, Hiland Dairy, Suan’s Scotch Bonnet, Head Country, Bar-S, J-M, and more.

Chopped Kale Salad
Makes 6 servings
1/3 cup sliced raw almonds
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Griffin’s mustard
1 tablespoon Andrews Honey Bees honey
1 teaspoon minced shallot
1 garlic clove, minced
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 bunches Scissortail Farms kale, ribs and stems removed
1/3 cup dried cranberries
½ cup pomegranate seeds
4 ounces goat cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread the almonds evenly on sheet a pan, and bake for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, mustard, shallot and garlic. Add salt and pepper, adding more or less to taste.
In a large bowl, toss the kale, toasted almonds, cranberries, pomegranate seeds and dressing. Let sit for 10 minutes, then crumble with goat cheese and serve.

Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders
4 sturdy rolls, like ciabatta, or French bread cut into 4 pieces for sandwiches
2 tablespoons Hiland Salted Butter
¼ cup Suan’s Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jelly
3 tablespoons softened cream cheese
¼ teaspoon Head Country All-Purpose Championship Seasoning
8 slices Bar-S Deli-Shaved Honey Ham
4 slices Bar-S Fully Cooked Bacon, warmed
4 slices thin-sliced smoked cheddar cheese
Slice rolls or bread in half, sandwich style. Spread outsides of bread with butter. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine pepper jelly, cream cheese and seasoning. Spread this mixture on inside of rolls. Layer ham, bacon and cheddar on each bottom bun. Cover each with top bun.
Use a panini maker or griddle, cooking about 5 minutes and toasting bread on both sides. If you don’t have a panini maker, cook sandwiches at medium-high heat in a skillet, turning to toast both sides of the bread, and cooking until golden brown. Press down sandwich with the back of a spatula.
Cut in half, and serve warm.
