All opinions are 100% mine.
Friends, can we talk here?
It is JUNE! And you know that that means right?
SUMMERTIME which of course means grilling!!
Have you started your grilling season yet? In the Pacific Northwest grilling season is just about a religious experience, and ours is in high gear, with no plans of slowing any time soon. I am enjoying it so much I just might move onto my deck and abandon my kitchen all together!
We have been knee deep in burgers and BBQ, but (for me) there is always that yearning for fresh produce. Which is why I got uber excited when Marzetti® approached me to give some of their Marzetti® Vineyard Dressing a try.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I will grill just about any veggie you throw at me, and these dressing would be amazing on them, but a nice fresh salad with peppery arugula, the bite of some red onion, and the sweet juiciness of grape tomatoes? You really can't top that.
Unless of course it it with some perfectly grilled steak, tangy goat cheese, and a mouthwatering salad dressing made with balsamic vinegar and Cabernet right?
Oh yes, I am right!

Friends, this dish just makes me smile
#1 - I love the fact that saltimbocca actually means "leap into the mouth" in Italian. Which, is very fitting since I pretty much shoveled it into may face as fast as humanly possible.
#2 - It comes out perfect every single time I make it. So I feel like I am doing something right.
Number 2 is important because I am currently failing, epically, at gardening
Well I guess epically is a bit dramatic since I do have 4 tomato plants, and 3 zucchini plants. But I have managed to murder 4 spaghetti squash plants, 3 zucchini, and several pole beans #blackthumb
