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.
