Each summer, we plan at least one big bonfire appetizer party at our house. I love entertaining but like to do it simply, otherwise I get very overwhelmed. My husband has a big family and they have always had parties potluck style. This is such a simpler way of entertaining because you do not have to do everything yourself. Then, when I go to their parties, I bring a dish to pass too. It works out so well!

Tomorrow is our annual party and I cannot wait. I am making three appetizers myself: pizza dip with homemade breadsticks, veggie cream cheese pizza and this amazing salsa verde with tortilla chips.

To make it easier, I stocked up on most of the ingredients earlier in the week. I picked up JaM Cellars wine to serve with our party. I also made this salsa verde the day before to make less work the day of the party.

Until about a year ago, I was not a fan of salsa verde- I know, I was crazy! Luckily, a switch flipped and I am obsessed with it! I make my own red salsa all the time and when I saw fresh tomatillos at the grocery store, I knew it was time to try my own homemade green salsa.

It was super easy to make and turned out so good. I am using this green salsa verde on everything! Tacos, eggs, with chips, etc. So, so good!

We paired our appetizers with JaM Cabernet Sauvignon which my husband really enjoyed since this is his favorite flavor of wine. It is bursting with juicy, dark berries and is velvety and fruity. A couple of months ago, we had the JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay which was my favorite. They also have a Toast Sparkling that I want to eventually try. This was the perfect easy summer party drink!  These wines are made in California and are rich and bold.
