Inspired by the flavors of Tuscany with olive oil, fresh herbs, wine and garlic, my recipe is simple, rustic and full of flavor. The marinade just takes minutes to prepare. Chiffonade is a French word meaning ‘rags’. As a cutting technique, the fresh herbs are rolled then cut into fine ribbons. This recipe is gluten-free and diabetic friendly.
