New Flavor Combination at This Week's Tasting
We have a special first-time recipe for you this week. It is an unexpected but deliciously addictive flavor combination! Watermelon and Tomato Salad – a match made in heaven, bursting with ingredients from the garden! Some have called it “Summer in a Bowl”. It is salty and sweet, with a hint of acidity. If the idea of tomatoes and watermelon together sounds odd to you, this dish will be a revelation. There is a saying that what grows together goes together, and in this case it is true. If you think of tomatoes as a fruit, which they are botanically, this combination makes more sense. Seasonality is the key. This salad is best made in the summer with fresh tomatoes and watermelon at their peak of flavor. It’s simple to make with only a few ingredients and can be customized to suit your tastes. Once you try this great summertime side dish you’ll be hooked. And it pairs perfectly with all your favorite cookout recipes.
To keep with the light fare, we will be pairing three rosé wines - Castello del Poggio Sweet Rosé, a seductive, crisp and delicate wine that is delightfully refreshing; Rocca delle Macìe Head to Head Rosé, a brilliant coral pink wine with complex red fruit aromas that has a pleasant freshness and aromatic persistency; and Fenn Valley Cabaret Rosé, a dry rosé made from free run juice of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
The power is on and we're ready to serve you. Hope to see you Friday night from 5-8 p.m.!
