Typically, I don’t believe in wine pairings with food. I mix whites and reds with different meats sometimes. However, I always like white wine with sushi. I always like red wine with…..I always like red wine! With everything!  Here’s some good info about wine pairings, though.

Gina’s easy bruschetta  to serve with wine:

make your own crostinis or buy them. If you make them, slice a baguette or buy crostinis and brush butter, olive oil, garlic and chives or your favorite herb and sea salt. Bake until golden.

mix Harissa Salsa from Trader Joe’s with Bruschetta toppings like Red Pepper Salsa, Artichoke and Olive Tapenade salsas.

Salud!
