This is a sponsored post, the thoughts as always are mine.
I'm so excited that it is finally summer, and you know what that means - picnics, BBQs, camping, pool parties, and... cookouts!
This year, we’ve got something special to celebrate! We joined forces with around 50 of our blogging friends to bring you #CookoutWeek – and entire week filled with yummy summer recipes perfect for your next cookout, along with a fun giveaway, courtesy of some awesome sponsors.
I know you’re all super eager to get to the giveaway but I wanted to share my very first recipe actually written HERE on Little House Big Alaska before the giveaway goodies. (Of course feel free skip all this and head straight down to the bottom of the page for the giveaway if you must!) And I’d like to say thanks to ALL the sponsors and especially The PinterTest Kitchen for putting this whole shindig together, thanks Allison, Sharon and Jessica, you’re awesome!
My first recipe is also a first course, a grilled salad featuring romaine hearts and a truffle dressing. I received a box of sponsor goodies from The French Farm and one of the items was a jar of Truffle Mayonnaise. Uh hello I’m never going to eat any other kind of mayo because Truffle Mayo kinda ruined me, in a GOOD way. Wow! One of the other goodies I got in my sponsor box was a box of Fleur De Sel, hand harvested French sea salt, it’s the perfect over the top finishing salt for this salad! Let me tell you guys I may never come home from France this fall
Now on to the giveaway! It’s super easy to enter, and one lucky winner will get:
