I am so excited to share with you a new (to me) product from Wilton Armetale that I absolutely love! I was sent the Flutes and Pearls Heart Dish you see below from the Flutes and Pearls collection. It is a special piece commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Wilton Armetale.
It is one of the prettiest serving dishes that will be beautiful on any table. I love the history of this company, it was started in 1892 by the Wilton Family in Wrightsville, PA. The company evolved thru the years and eventually became Wilton Armetale. They make an entire range of products from serving dishes to gourmet grillware. Cast in Armetale® Metal these pieces allow you to cook, grill or chill and serve in the same piece. The opinions here are my own and I can honestly tell you I love these pieces. I also have some great news to share! Wilton Armetale is also going to give away to one lucky winner all of the products seen in the picture below!

I want to share with you also a recipe that I just love, it is made with fresh corn, tomatoes, black beans and a fresh lime garlic cumin dressing. You could roast the corn if desired but I just quickly blanched it. It has a bright, fresh flavor and is a great addition to any picnic, buffet or dinner. It is better the longer it sets so it is also a great make ahead dish. If you are serving it in your Wilton Armetale you can go straight from the refrigerator to table. The dish will even help to keep the salad cool!
Look at that pretty detailing on the dish.
