Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Steuben

This garbanzo chicken salad recipe has a lot of flavors, and it calls for a wine with moderate body as a complement. Made entirely from Steuben grapes, Steuben from Tassel Ridge Winery will work perfectly. Steuben is a light, fruity, semi-sweet rosé with cherry and apple notes and just a hint of cinnamon on the nose and cherry and apple flavors on the palate with a slightly spicy, tangy finish. Serve chilled.—Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery
