Hooray for Zest

(1 Votes)

Zest is the colored outer skin of citrus, and it's packed with flavor. You can remove the zest by using a sharp knife or vegetable peeler and scraping strips off a lemon, lime, or orange. You can also use a cheese grater to scrape off fine pieces of zest. There's even a kitchen gadget called a zester that's made especially for this purpose!

Zest is great for:

  • Livening up cold or hot beverages
  • Intensifying flavors in cooked and baked dishes
  • Garnishing with color and fresh flavor

Tuscan Bread Salad

Crunchy seasoned croutons, ripe plum tomatoes, and fresh cucumbers are tossed in an olive oil blend to make what we think is one of the best bread salad recipes ever. It's a bonus that our Tuscan Bread Salad looks so beautiful, too!
