Chicken Caprese Salad

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/15/2017 to Salad

Caprese Salad is one of my favorite summer dishes.  Homegrown tomatoes and basil with fresh mozzarella, what is not to love about that!


My tomatoes are not quite ready yet so I made do with vine ripened tomatoes from the grocery store.  Fresh mozzarella is a must, the drier aged version is not the same by a long shot.  My basil however, is raring to go!  I decided to make a salad today using these ingredients and paring with a chicken thigh layered with basil, tomato and mozzarella.  Topped with a really great balsamic vinegar, YUM!


I used Buon Appetito to season my chicken.  This wonderful salt free blend is a balanced mix of Greek oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and sage.  Perfect addition to tomatoes, tomato sauces, fish, poultry, meat, and salad dressings.


A glass of slightly chilled Chianti is a perfect pairing with this dish.

Brined Grilled Pork Chops

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/12/2017 to Grilling Guide

Pontiac Trail Pig Powder is one of our family’s favorite spice rubs.  It makes any pork dish sing with flavor.  Today I decided to brine my chops before grilling, and the result was an amazingly moist and tender pork chop with a ton of flavor!


Pontiac Trail Pig Powder is Memphis-style BBQ rub that is well balanced with sweet and hot components. It caramelizes beautifully. This award-winning rub has a history of first place winners in competition cooking. Ideal for pork chops, pork tenderloin and baby back ribs. Also great on chicken. We love it when used on pork tenderloin in the Crockpot. Just a little touch of heat. Hand blended from brown sugar, Kosher salt, California paprika, marjoram, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, yellow mustard, grains of paradise, sugar, chili powder, black pepper, rosemary, brown mustard, clove and allspice.a 


I served this with Grilled Mixed Veggies with Up North Grilling.


A glass of cold White Shiraz is a perfect pairing with this dish.

It's All Greek Grilled Chicken and Radicchio

Posted by Wine & Spice on 5/25/2016 to Grilling Guide

I adore this time of year.  It is warm outside and we want to eat healthier and lighter.  This recipe is a play on a great dish by Tyler Florence.  It is so light and refreshing, the roasted herb garlic dressing that it is accompanied with is absolutely fantastic!  It is a great shade of green and oh-so good!


If you have never roasted your own garlic, you are in for a treat!  It really mellows the flavor and and enhances the sweetness.  So good you can just pop them in your mouth and enjoy by themselves. You can roast the garlic a day in advance if you wish.  Just keep it in the fridge.


I used It’s All Greek to Me to enhance the flavors, this is hand blended from Greek oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper, parsley, Korintje cinnamon and ground nutmeg.   Also great as a dressing, on chicken, pork and fish.  It brings out the Greek in you and the flavors of the Mediterranean into your home!


This pairs beautifully with a Mythos beer.


καλή όρεξη.  (Enjoy!)
