Rocky Rangers @ Oliver's

Melanie Wong | Jul 23, 2001 03:45 AM

My friends apologized for "throwing dinner together" tonight on the patio of their hilltop home. I wish that more people had such good aim!

They'd picked up a couple of rotisserie-grilled Rocky Ranger chickens at Oliver's Market (560 Montecito Center, Santa Rosa). Redolent with rosemary and garlic, these birds were done to a turn with tender flesh and crisp golden skin.

The chickens were hand-shredded and combined with red leaf lettuce, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes from the garden for a hearty salad served room temperature. All pulled together with a tangy dressing of Meyer lemon juice and zest, local EVOO, a bit of mustard and lots of fresh ground pepper. Accompanied with warm slices of summer squash off the grill, this was a complete meal served with a glass of 1994 Kuentz-Bas Reserve Personelle Pinot Gris and the fruity and the exuberant 2000 barrel sample of Cabernet Franc from their vineyard.
