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.
