Pinzimonio is the name that we give to the sauce in which fresh raw vegetables get dipped. It's a light, healthy appetizer that can be served in any season serving with what the land offers.
The best veggies to serve "in pinzimonio" are:

  • tomatoes
  • peppers
  • endives
  • onions (normal, spring or red)
  • salad with small leaves
  • cucumber
  • fennel
  • celery
  • avocado

The Pinzimonio must be prepared only with:

  • pure extra virgin olive oil
  • lemon or vinegar
  • salt

to which eventually according with taste, add:

  • basil
  • parsley
  • thyme
  • sage
  • chivesp
  • pepper
  • chili pepper
  • yogurt
  • mustard
  • etc...

To create the pinzimonio sauce mix the olive oil with the herbs, the lemon/vinegar and the salt with the help of a fork or a whisk until it become an emulsion.

Serve the veggies cut in small sticks arranged in a big serving plate to place in the center of the table with the oil in a small bowl placed in the center of the plate

To serve individually use transparent glasses with the oil at the bottom and all the veggies arranged inside like small colored crayons.
