Even though the first officially day of summer is about a month away, the weather here already feels like summer. It’s been warm and sunny outside… just the way I like it!

This is the perfect time of the year for fresher, lighter meals! One of my favorite light summer meal is Spinach Pesto Grilled Salmon. Not only is this tasty dish light and fresh, you can serve it over zoodles and blistered cherry tomatoes for a better-for-you summer meal that your whole family will love.

While you could buy a pre-made pesto, my homemade version is ready in a flash and has such amazing flavor. The key to this recipe is replacing the standard basil with spinach PLUS a little Holland House Organic White Wine Vinegar. Yep, that delicious vinegar adds such a bright, clean flavor you won’t want to bother buying that bland, pre-made pesto again.

Crafted from oak-barrel aged wine made with 100% organic grapes, Holland House Organic White Wine Vinegar brings delicious balance and bright organic goodness to all your favorite dishes! It’s a must-have ingredient for my pesto and so many other amazing dishes.

Gather a few ingredients and you can have this tasty meal on the table in under 30 minutes. It’s easy enough for a regular weeknight meal and would be a fantastic option when entertaining. The presentation is beautiful and the taste is absolutely amazing.

Pick up a few ingredients and add this dish to your menu this week!
