I'm actually not much of a party girl, but I do really enjoy this holiday.
It's the unofficial beginning of the summer season. And I absolutely love everything about summer. The lazy days at the beach, movies at the park, concerts at the Pier, pool parties, and barbecues. And if you are anything like me, ice-cream every day :)
So why don't start the long weekend celebrations next Friday with the first ever National Pinot Grigio Day?!? Cavit Wines is introducing this new wine holiday, and it's the perfect way to kick off the warmer months to come.
I'm ready to toast with a refreshing glass of Pinot Grigio next to this healthy, laughably easy, and oh-so pretty appetizer. Check it out!
These tasty smoked salmon bites are great for your next summer party or picnic.
They are made with thick slices of cucumbers, cut into a fun flower shape, and topped with a rich and creamy smoked salmon mousse - made with ricotta cheese, a touch of lemon juice and a dash of Dijon mustard. Delicate and flavorful, all at the same time.
I simply love recipes that are fresh, easy and don't take a lot of time to pull together. Who wants to spend too much time in a hot kitchen whipping up some complicated dish, when you can make this recipe in no time?!
So relax, kick off your shoes, pick up your glass of Pinot Grigio and jump in the fun (...or the pool in my case).
This is what summer should be all about!
Now, let's talk about the wine without which no party is complete.
Cavit Pinot Grigio was first introduced in the United States back in 1977, from the Northern Italian regions of Trentino, Friuli and Veneto. These locations are not just recognized for their spectacular natural beauty, but also for their soil and climatic conditional that are ideal for vineyard cultivation.
Its balanced character and fruity aroma make Cavit Pinot Grigio a great match for my delicate smoked salmon bites, or any seafood dish really, enhancing its flavor and complementing each other.
Thank you Cavit for the amazing wine!
