Last week, we were invited to try out Sauce’s Summer Sampler Menu. Have you heard of it?! It’s great for a summer treat, $22 gets you a pizza, a salad and two glasses of wine, or in our case as glass of wine and their bomb ass strawberry basil lemonade. Seriously, it might have been better than the wine (just add vodka. j/k. but maybe). Anyway, we had a great time and with so many locations around Phoenix and Scottsdale (and beyond) we found one, less than a mile away from our house. I opted for a Malbec but my dinner date got the strawberry basil lemonade and she has still been talking about it for the past week!We tried the watermelon arugula salad (see below for recipe!)Not a bad spread for $22 bucks, totally filled us both up and had a couple of slices left over!This is their signature Rosemary Potato pizza with olive tapenade sauce over spinach and feta, but we also love their ‘build your own’ pizzas where you can choose from toppings like house made meatballs, caramelized onions, and fresh mozzarella.This salad a is new seasonal so if you’re craving it and want to attempt it yourself Sauce was kind enough to share the recipe:
Watermelon, 1” x 1” cubed – 5 ounces
Red Onion, julienned – 1 tbsp
Jicama Batons, 1 ½” x 1/4” – 2 ounces
Spinach & Arugula Blend (50/50) – 3 ounces
White Balsamic Vinaigrette – 3 tbsp
Feta Cheese – 2 tbsp
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds (Salted) – 1 tbsp
1. Combine watermelon, jicama, red onion, spinach & arugula blend, and vinaigrette in a mixing bowl. Gently toss to combine everything well.
2. Garnish salad with crumbled feta and pumpkin seeds.
**Yes, our food was complementary for this post, but this is our honest opinion as always.**
