Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation— Tassel Ridge Iowa Candleglow ® White Iowa Candleglow White from Tassel Ridge is a dry, fruity white that will complement the flavors in this recipe. Iowa Candleglow White has pineapple, pear, melon, and apricot notes on the nose and palate and a finish that hints of green apple. This dry white is made from La Crescent, Brianna, and Edelweiss grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa, vineyards. Serve chilled. — Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery.
