Memorial Day Menu and Wine Pairings
Fire up the grill and chill the wine—Memorial Day is almost here.
We're grabbing our trusty tongs, cranking up the heat, and getting our sizzle on this Memorial Day with a menu that boasts a medley of summer-fresh flavors. To help us get the party started right, our favorite sommelier at Black Box Wines has offered a puckish pairing for each course. Follow the links below for tasting notes:
• Happy App: Toasted Walnut and Sun-Dried Tomato Dip
Suggested Pairing: 2009 California Merlot
• Main Course: Marinated Lemon Chicken Breasts
Suggested Pairing: 2010 Monterey Country Chardonnay
• Yummy Side: Sesame Noodles with Shredded Vegetables
Suggested Pairing: 2009 Columbia Valley Riesling
This tomato-based dish does triple duty as a dip, spread and pasta sauce.
Lemon and herbs add zest to chicken breasts.
Meatless and filling -- and fun to eat.
