In our minds, the best summer dishes are always light, fresh, flavorful and accompanied by a glass of rosé. Over the years, we’ve gathered some amazing recipes and pairings that check all those boxes and more. Here are some of our favorite rosé pairings: we recommend you bookmark these asap and slot them into your seasonal menu rotation.
Maybe it’s our New England roots, but nothing says summer to us quite like rosé and a lobster roll. Add a heaping pile of fresh cut fries and onion rings like Sarah Rose Stuart did, and we’re in heaven.
Rosé Wine Mussels
We’re all about The Home Cook's Kitchen’s devotion to rosé. Not only are her rosé wine mussels paired with rosé, they’re made with it. The dry yet fruity profile of our Lot 33 Rosé brings out the saltiness of the mussels and freshness of the herbs.
Arugula Salad with Strawberries & Oranges
When it’s too hot to cook, this delightful salad from Artfully Alissa will be your go-to. The combination of spicy arugula, sweet and citrusy fruit, and rosé is pure bliss.
Curry Chicken Skewers
This simple, quick meal on the grill from Platings and Pairings is packed with flavor. The sriracha in the marinade delivers a little bit of heat, so you’ll want a refreshing rosé to cool things down.
Asparagus & Goat Cheese Tart
This dish from Artfully Alissa looks fancy, but is super easy to whip up for a spring brunch with friends. Goat cheese has a tanginess and acidity that calls for a bright, easy-going rosé.
Cheese & Charcuterie
What’s not to love about a charcuterie board? There’s an array of delicious meats and cheeses, and you can really add whatever other seasonal flavors you like, so the possibilities are endless. This one features just a few of our favorites: a crusty baguette, grapes and olives.
