Rosé Picnic Pairings

Minty Summer Fruit Salad

DSC08359

Wine by Joe Rosé - Willamette Valley AVA

This fresh fruit salad with a touch of mint is just as refreshing as taking a sip of Wine by Joe Rosé! Our Rosé of Pinot Noir has a variety of bright fruit and floral aromas that are pulled out when combined with the zippy acid, and stunning fruit flavors of this salad. Meanwhile, the mint brightens and refreshes the palate with a pop of herbal flavor. Pair these two together and you're sure to be the chillest and freshest at the picnic.


Servings: 4 people

Cost of grocery haul: $15

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup strawberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup cherries - pitted
  • 2 plums
  • 2 peaches
  • 2 kiwis
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves - chopped

Ingredients for the Dressing:

  • 1 lemon - you will be using the zest and the juice
  • 1 orange - you will be using the zest and the juice
  • 1 tsp honey

Directions:

  • Chop all of the fruit and place into a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl combine the lemon zest, orange zest, the juice of both the lemon and the orange, and the honey and mix until fully incorporated. (If the honey does not incorporate you can place this in the microwave for 5 seconds at a time, stirring in-between. This will help loosen the honey and allow for better incorporation.)
  • Pour the dressing over the fruit and mix until evenly coated. (If the dressing is warm from the microwave wait a few minutes before pouring on top.)
  • Top the salad with the fresh mint.
  • Serve with Wine by Joe Rosé!
