PARTNER POST — Grilling season is here and it is time to explore Italian grilling with authentic ingredients from Colavita.
A polenta loaf is sliced and grilled with peaches and is served with a peppery strawberry balsamic sauce for a sweet bite of summer. Enjoy with a raspberry shrub drink made of raspberry vinegar and soda water, for a refreshing fizziness.

In my eyes, the perfect Italian grilling table ALWAYS includes a classic caprese salad with some amazing mozzarella or burrata cheese. When given the task to create a unique summer grilling dish, however, I went out of my comfort zone and attempted some flavors I knew were great on their own, but hadn’t put together before. The mildness of the polenta totally blends with the peppery strawberry balsamic sauce, and the grilled peaches add that sweet taste of summer. The raspberry shrub combines raspberry vinegar with fresh raspberries and soda water, for a refreshing fizziness.
Colavita olive oils and vinegars are items that I buy on a regular basis, but I had no idea they carried such a wide array of awesome Italian goodies. Capers, polenta, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, oils, vinegars, even salt and pepper! The quality is just killer, just like Italian food should be.
