Perfect Summer Pairing!Light, Refreshing, Aromatic & Flavorful! These are all words that come to mind when pairing the perfect summer salad with the perfect summer wine! It just doesn't get any better than Thai Inspired Summer Salad paired with Barton & Guestier Rose D`Anjou wine. The salad is not only delicious but easy to make and the Rose` well...there are just no words to describe it.
We love it so much we included the recipe below because it's just to good to keep it to ourselves!
Here's what you'll need:
Chilled Bottle of Barton & Guestier Rose` (We find our's at our local grocery store Publix. You can google it or look on their website to find local distributor.)
Thai Inspired Summer Salad:
Bag of romaine lettuce (pre-made bags make it easier) or Head of lettuce if you'd like to make lettuce wraps
2 lbs of chicken (We buy already cooked chicken strips but you can cook it any way you'd like.)
2 bunches of green onions
1 bunch of cilantro
1 cup of shredded carrots (Or more if you'd like)
1 cup salted peanuts
1/2 cup of Sesame Oil
2 tbls of Chili Oil (This is what creates the kick in this recipe so if you like it hot use more)
1/2 cup of Honey (Use less if you aren't up for sweet)
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
Dice the chicken, cilantro, shredded carrots and green onions; Chop the peanuts. Mix all of them together in a bowl set aside. Mix all ingredients for sauce together well and pour over the chicken mixture and mix together. Chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes to allow the sauce to soak into the mixture and for it to be nice and chilled. You don't have to do this step...it's really a personal preference. Serve the Thai inspired mixture over a bed of fresh lettuce or you can use it to make lettuce wraps as well. That's it! Prepare your tastebuds for a summer delight!
