Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Steuben

Steuben is a semi-sweet, light, fruity, 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. Made entirely from Steuben grapes, Steuben is perfect as an aperitif or try it with salmon or chicken salads or an Asian stir-fry. Serve chilled.
