Perfect for every vegetable, from asparagus to zucchini. We especially love it sprinkled on fresh tomatoes, corn on the cob, snap peas and green beans. Also makes a great salad dressing for green salads and hearty veggies on the grill, and use it to marinate fish fillets, lean pork, and boneless/skinless chicken as well!
Hand-mixed from: basil, oregano, red bell pepper, garlic, thyme, fennel, black pepper and anise. To make oil & vinegar salad dressing: Cover 1 TB. Tuscan Sunset Seasoning with 1 TB. water, let stand a few minutes. Add 1/3 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup balsami
