Secret Recipe: Pizzeria Delfina's Insalata Tricolore


The key to Pizzeria Delfina's refreshing Insalata Tricolore is the lemon vinaigrette. The dressing is so good that the restaurant even bottles and sells the citrusy elixir to their customers. Lucky for us, the pizzeria has decided to share the wealth with an easy-to-make-at-home recipe. Enjoy!
