Expert Tips

  • Variation : Grill any of your favourite vegetables. Try 1-inch pieces of bell peppers and sliced zucchini, yellow summer squash and mushrooms.
  • Substitution : White wine vinegar can be used in place of the white balsamic vinegar.
  • Success : Use extra-virgin olive oil for the very best flavour.
