Grilled Tri Tip Sandwiches

All Amounts Are Estimates...Taste For Proper Amounts Before Using!


  • 1 tall jar of roasted red peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small buch basil
  • Mayo


  • Tri Tip grilled and sliced
  • Baguette
  • Cheese

Use a food processor on the first three ingredients until smooth and then stir in enough mayo until you get a nice pink salmon color.

Spread this sauce on your baguette and top with tri tip and cheese. We use a pizza cheese blend, but it would be good with lots of different types. If you really want to impress use some Midnight Moon from Cypress Grove (from a gourmet cheese place). The sandwiches are also good with some nice lettuce put on after grilling.

About Holly's Hill Vineyards

Nestled in the beautiful Sierra Foothills in El Dorado County and Pleasant Valley, Holly's Hill Vineyards specializes in producing Rhone varietal wines. In fact, the estate vineyards are composed entirely of Rhone varieties including Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Counoise. The winery produces varietal wines, a dry Rosé, and red and white blends. The enthusiasm for Rhone varieties at Holly's Hill started when Tom and Holly Cooper (owners) shared their first bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape on their honeymoon. It's been a love affair ever since.
