The Week is Half Over Let's Celebrate!

Wine Thoughts
White:  King Estate Signature Collection Pinot Gris 2011 this wine has a nice balance of fruit and citrus that I think would go really nicely with the salmon and pistachios.

Red:  I really prefer red wine with salmon and  the Guigal 2009 Côtes du Rhone Rouge for me is a perfect complement.  I am certain that some would not agree that such a full bodied wine with fruit and berry overtones should be paired with salmon but, I like it.  And we always say drink what you love.

Shopping List

1 small head red cabbage
1 small head of savoy cabbage

1 granny smith apple
1 lemon
1 banana

2  6 oz salmon fillets

1 8 oz container vanilla yogurt

Organization and Other Thoughts

  • Check your pantry.  Do you already have: butter, extra virgin olive oil, a shallot, lemons other grocery items?
  • We recommend 6 - 8 oz portions and that you ask them to remove the skin.
  • If you are concerned about fat content, you can use    1% milk and low fat yogurt.
  • The smooth dijon mustard without the seeds is preferable in this recipe.
  • The chocolate syrup is optional.  If you decide to use it just buy the one you like the best.
  • Although the list calls for mayonnaise, I prefer Miracle Whip salad dressing.  Use whatever you prefer.
