We are years past worrying about White Zinfandel, the sickly sweet California Kool-Aid that was rampant for several years.
These days, pink wine is serious stuff, pairing beautifully with everything having to do with outdoor summer life in the Pacific Northwest.
Here are a few of our favorite dry rosé food pairings:
- Egg salad sandwiches
- Ham sandwiches
- Pulled pork
- Grilled paninis stuffed with cheese and ham
- Grilled flatbreads with blue cheese and mushrooms
- Salad Niçoise
- Salmon cakes
- Indian curries
- Barbecued pork
- Fresh Dungeness crab
- Seared scallops
- Soft cheeses
- Pasta tossed with grilled veggies and olive oil
