No. 2 : Kitchen Scoop

Did you know that grated ginger is a perfect compliment to fresh berries and fruit like strawberries and oranges? The slightly spicy taste enhances the sweetness AND ramps up the nutrition of this slaw. Add in the tart taste of the Granny Smith apples and wow! You’ll never think of ginger in the same way again.

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Quick salads like this make the most of seasonal produce.  As we roll into the summer and blueberries come into season, try swapping those into the salad. Same with cherries later this summer. Use the recipe as a guide for your own creations!

Chateau Haut Mouleyre Blanc
Bordeaux, France
Around $20.00

The wines of Bordeaux are undeniably some of the most impressive wines in the world, but you can also find affordable Bordeaux that is a good pairing with weekday meals. Sweet and tart from the berries and apples, this salad is a shoe-in for a White Bordeaux. This French “old world” wine is named for the place it’s from, the Bordeaux region of France, but made with the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Unlike the more grassy and razor-edged wines Sav Blancs from New Zealand, white Bordeaux is rounder and richer with more tropical flavors.
