Christmas salad

Food and wine pairing is about what tastes good – so don’t worry too much about the rules, just mix some flavours and pour a glass of your favourite wine and see what you think! You can use recipes for inspiration, but adapt them to suit your own tastes, or perhaps to suit seasonal produce from your garden.

This salad mixes many different flavours from sweet to peppery, tangy to toasty – perfect with our exciting new Rosé, PINK Pinot by Lawson’s Dry Hills. Serve chilled.

Christmas salad

2 cups rocket

50g goat’s cheese, crumbled

Fennel bulb, finely sliced

50g toasted pine nuts

Tablespoon of pomegranate seeds

Dressing – combine the following in a jar and shake until well-mixed.

¼ cup Raspberry vinegar

¾ cup good quality extra virgin olive oil

¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard

Half a clove of fresh garlic, minced

Pinch of Marlborough sea salt

Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl and add as much of the dressing as you wish. Quantities are approximate!

Enjoy with grilled fish or meats, especially glazed ham, or just some artisan bread and don’t forget the PINK!
