Dill is one of the herbs I love – that is often forgotten! Bright, fresh, grassy, and aromatic this herb is a perfect match for gorgeous summer veggies like this corn. But not only does it bring flavor to the table, Dill is packed with nutrition! Native to Southern Russia, Western Africa and the Mediterrean, Dill contains both monoterpenes and flavonoids. Just like parsley, dill’s volatile oils qualify it as “chemoprotective”, a quality that can help it neutralize carcinogens like cigarette smoke.
No. 3 : Clever Idea
Think creatively when using dill: Potato salad, canned tuna, coleslaw, cucumbers, fresh shrimp, tomatoes and green salads all benefit from a healthy sprinkle of freshly chopped dill.

MUGA Rioja Rosado (Rose)
Rose for any warm weather weekend is perfect. A blend of three spanish grapes, Garnacha, Viura and Tempranillo makes this wine an easy drinker and a wonderful food wine for creamy corn. Not only is this wine a stunning salmon color in your glass, you’ll enjoy a fresh crisp aroma of berries, peaches and other fresh fruit with a taste of green apples and tropical fruit. Spanish wine is SUCH a great bargain – quality for a super price – this zesty pink is certainly no exception.
