Recipes - Corn Salsa Tostadas

Roussanne

Corn Salsa Tostadas

  • 2 ears of corn shucked, hairs removed, rinsed
  • 3 tbsp red onions, diced
  • 1 cup black beans from can, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup fresh tomato (about one medium tomato), diced
  • 3 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lime (about 1 tbsp)
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/3 of a serrano chile, seeds removed, minced
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • Chips, preferably homemade by frying corn tortilla wedges.

Cut the kernels from the corn and mix with the other ingredients carefully so that you don't squish the beans. Top on homemade chips and enjoy with Holly's Hill Roussanne.

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.
