There are few things I relish more during summer than dining al fresco in my backyard as the sun settles in for the evening over Lake Michigan. A cold, inexpensive bottle of Friulano paired with my white bean bruschetta with grilled radicchio salad makes it a perfect evening. This bruschetta was one of the most…
