Add Some Zip to Bowl Game Sandwiches

    A great way to watch the bowl game of your choice on New Year’s Day is with your favorite submarine sandwich and a nice, cold glass of wine – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling… whatever you like.

     Particularly if you’re serving Sauvignon Blanc, a splash of olive vinaigrette can really make the sandwich… and the wine… sing. The following recipe makes 1 cup.



* 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

* 1/4 cup vegetable oil

* 1/4 cup red wine vinegar

* 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

* 1/2 cup pitted olives, finely chopped

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

* 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


1. Mix all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

2. Shake well before using.

     *** TOMORROW: A great topping for a roast beef sandwich.
