National Pinot Grigio Day: Summer Chickpea Salad

Are you excited? Summer is finally upon us. Parties, family gatherings, dining al fresco are all on my mind. I can’t wait for relaxing evenings, foods harvested from my garden and beverages to celebrate a more relaxed vibe for the next several months.

As the temperatures rise, our plates are filled with colorful foods and refreshing beverages. I’ve partnered up with Cavit Collection to pair up a summer recipe along with their light & crisp Pinot Grigio (hello, National Pinot Grigio day this Friday) for that perfect pairing. I love easy recipes, that are quite flexible and can be prepared ahead of time so you can enjoy your family, friends or party go-ers. Along with a wonderful veggie/bean salad, I love to stock up on lighter wines for guests. Featuring one of our favorites, Cavit Pinot Grigio is the perfect, light summer wine. I know wine selection can be quite difficult if you aren’t familiar, but this Pinot is a wonderful option that everyone will love.
