Venetian Blend is the hands-down favorite blend at Red Stick Spice Company. It's versatility is the main reason. Venetian is a blend of Mediterranean flavors--think garlic, onion, fennel, spices--with Romano Cheese. Delicious!
Here are five ideas for Venetian Blend (and five is just a small sample of its uses) that will take you less than five minutes in the kitchen...
1. Bread Dipping--Sprinkle Venetian Blend in a plate, add grated fresh or roasted garlic, extra virgin olive oil and all you need a crusty loaf of bread.
2. Salad Dressing--Combine 2 Tbl Venetian Blend, 2 tsp lemon juice. Whisk in 1/2 cup Red Stick Spice Arbequina ExtraVirgin Olive Oil. Toss with Salad Greens.
3. Marinade--Combine 4 Tbl Venetian Blend with a little Red Stick Spice Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil to make a paste-like consistency. Paint chicken breasts, pork tenderloin, fish or steak with this combination. Refrigerate for 30 mintues or up to 12 hours. Cook as desired.
4. Venetian Bread--Combine 4 Tbl Venetian Blend with softened butter. Split a loaf of french bread in half and spread mixture onto halves. Bake at 350 until warm and bubbly. Run under a broiler to brown, if desired.
