*Made in the very southwestern part of Spain in the Cadiz province, Sherry vinegar is Spain’s answer to Italy’s Balsamic. Made from Sherry Wine, its rich and delicious – although not as sweet as Balsamic. Its worth seeking out – but if you don’t have sherry vinegar, you can substitute apple cider vinegar in this recipe.
No. 3 : Get Creative
*Did you know there are two distinct uses for a green onion? The long green part of the onion should be used for uncooked preparations. The green is softer in flavor than the white. The white part of the onion can be used just like a regular onion. It has lots of yummy onion flavor that is perfect in a recipe that cooks the onion.

Hall Ranch Sauvignon Blanc
Paso Robles California
When you think of a sauvignon blanc you may think of New Zealand or more traditionally a wine from France. However, a sauvignon banc from California is a bright and fresh alternative choice for today’s easy recipe. When you smell this yummy “Editor’s Choice” wine from Wine Enthusiast magazine you’ll enjoy aromas of apples, citrus, and tropical flowers. Tart acidity and juicy citrus fruits are the hallmark of its taste – making the citrus in the salad pop with flavor.
