When you’re planning your next barbecue, buy a few bottles of drunken salsa. It's delicious with a bag of tortilla chips, or incorporate the salsa it into your dishes. La Fundidora’s new gourmet drunk salsas are infused with wine: Ravenswood Salsa Borracha and Salsa Macha are updated versions of traditional recipes; contemporary riffs on salsas made with alcohol. Lorena, a long-time resident of California, met Joel Peterson, the founding winemaker iconic Sonoma winery Ravenswood, fell in love with his County Series wines, and developed the salsas as La Fundidora’s first new offerings since it got off the ground three years ago. 

Ingredients

  • ¼  red onion, sliced
  • Apple cider vinegar

  • avocado, sliced
  • collard green leaves, washed and dried
  • Ravenswood Salsa Macha by La Fundidora

Directions

Cut one quarter of an onion in fine slices and marinade in apple cider vinegar for at least 20 minutes.

Boil chicken breast. Once chicken is thoroughly cooked, drain and let cool. Cut into long, thin pieces. Set aside.

Peel ear of corn and roast lightly in a pan for three to five minutes. Cut the kernels off the stalk with a knife or peel with a fork.

Collard Green Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Collard Green Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
