If one is going to drink French rose' something from the south of France may be the perfect fit. And when it borders on being 'health food' so much the better. The wine in the post immediately below was as suitable as one could get with the salad pictured above.
The ingredients were faro cooked in some chicken stock, halved cherry tomatoes, chopped red onion, Nicoise olives, blanched green beans and small chunks of oil packed tuna. Everything was tossed with a simple vinaigrette of olive oil, Dijon mustard, an anchovy, Meyer lemon juice and salt and pepper. A quartered boiled egg, some Romaine lettuce, lemon slices and a few crunchy bread sticks finished the plate.
For a hot, dry evening it was definitely a refreshing change of pace.
