Deb's Blood Orange Mignonette

I am back! I have been working lots and yesterday it was Flights & Bites for my dear friends John & Cynthia's West Wind Winery. This is a wine pairing I have done for them for the past 4 years. It is truly a labor of love! Pairing food with Cynthia's wines is a blast! The best part is that all the proceeds from the wines go to Gilead House, a home here in Novato for single Mothers and their children. So yesterday Drake's Bay Oyster Company donated some of their fabulous oysters to the event! Thank you Drake's Bay and the wonderful Ginny! I came up with this twist on a mignonette for Cynthia's Sauvignon Blanc. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! We got rave reviews...let me know what you think! xo

1 C Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar
1 T Blood Orange Juice, Fresh or Bottled
2 T Shallots, Finely Minced
2 T Cilantro, Finely Minced
Pinch of salt
Combine and refrigerate. When ready to serve on Drake’s Bay Oysters, spoon over oysters in the shell!
Add a little olive oil and this would be a great salad dressing!
