shrimp, beet, raspberry, radicchio, pickled red onion, rose petal salad
Hey summer! Where ya goin’? Not so fast, please! We’re holding on to summer by drinking our favorite pink wines: chilled dry French rosés which are the epitome of summer – light, fresh, and refreshing. This salad is crafted in a way so as to let the integrity of each ingredient shine, taking care not to overdress, but letting the raspberry vinegar and olive oil enhance the flavors. The spectrum of pink colors, fruity and flowery aromas, and range of flavors and textures beautifully complement rosé wines.
rosé salad recipe
Slice radicchio into fine ribbons, reserving a few leaves as cups to hold the salad. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Toss raspberries with raspberry vinegar, salt and pepper.
Slice steamed baby beets into quarters.
Place radicchio cups in the center of a platter, arrange a mound of radicchio ribbons over the leaves.
Arrange beets around the radicchio.
Place pickled red onion over the radicchio, top with raspberries.
Arrange chilled shrimp in the center.
Scatter pink rose petals around the platter.
Drizzle entire platter with olive oil and raspberry vinegar.
Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
This David Austin Old English Rose “Ambridge” is from my garden. When choosing rose petals to garnish the salad remember that roses are not equally suitable for garnish. Look for roses with a strong fragrance. And as always, make sure the roses are edible, not treated with chemicals, and eat only in moderation.
Bieler Pere et Fils Rosé, Coteaux d’Aix en Provence
Bieler Pere et Fils Rosé is soft cranberry in color with a lovely aromas of raspberry, bing cherry, wild strawberry and spicy minerality. Made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon it is crisp with flavor notes of raspberry and spice. The finish is long and refreshing. What a match!
This salad was inspired by one the go-to cookbooks in my collection: The Vintner’s Table Cookbook – Recipes from a Winery Chef by Mary Evely. Fabulous food & wine pairing suggestions plus great wine-friendly recipes make this book a terrific resource.
