Chicken and Bacon Salad:
A super dish for Spring and Summer lunches and good for weight-watchers too! I’d treat this the same way that many Spaniards treat their Paellas and order a chilled rosado to accompany it.
Chicken is happy with most styles of wine but the flavour of bacon, despite its often salty nature, can be overrun by bold white wine flavours and tannic reds. A lightly coloured rosado (in Spain rosé wine comes in all shades of red) made with Tempranillo or with Syrah will complement this dish nicely, adding to the overall taste but not overpowering the salad.
