Most *Fingerling Potatoes are a “heritage variety” of potatoes. “Heritage potatoes” are those grown from seeds 50 to 100 years old. Fun to use because of their unusual shapes and colors, they make any salad festive!

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Sherry Vinegar is one of my favorites. Spain’s answer to balsamic is made in southwest Spain, and its base is sherry wine. The amount of acidity depends on the the wine used to make it. If you’re not using sherry vinegar, its time to give its complex nutty flavor a try!

A big bright aroma with berries, spice and a velvety plush taste of red fruit make this Spanish wine a real charmer. Tempranillo is an indigenous grape to Spain, and the 

main grape of the wines of the Rioja region. Rioja shares many qualities with Pinot Noir – soft berry and cherry fruit flavors, medium acidity and tannins. It stands up well to the strong tastes of grilled meats and smoked paprika – and you can serve it slightly chilled – perfect for a summer cookout!
