The mercury is rising, and along with summer, it’s time to celebrate outdoor dining and to live lighter with sensational salads and a glass of cold, refreshing vino – preferably on a seaside porch! Here are our favourite picks for satisfying summer salads, perfect for sharing with a bottle of the beachhouse Rosé or Sauvignon Blanc at your next dinner party.

This nutty quinoa and goat’s cheese salad is an excellent match for the off-dry beachhouse Rosé with its well-defined berry and cherry fruit. The bright acidity of the wine, in particular, amplifies the tangy goat’s cheese flavour.
